Animals on the Move

This resource, aimed at Key Stage Two, covers the topic areas of all living things and habitats. It includes three investigations which look at:

*Crawling caterpillars

*How seed beetles move in response to light

*Brine shrimps - top, middle or bottom dwellers.

Each practical activity also offers an opportunity to assess scientific enquiry skills. The detailed teacher guidance includes previous learning, background information and notes on running the activities. Differentiated worksheets are provided to consolidate learning, reinforce vocabulary and provide data from which children may draw conclusions.

Provided by the Association of Animal Behaviour (ASAB), this resource was developed to help children develop an understanding of how animals move. It also provides teachers with a background to the science of animal behaviour, showing where it may link in to the curriculum at primary level and behavioural studies of animals on the move.
