What The Teacher Says
”I have really enjoyed teaching this topic and helping the children learn more about the human body. I am really impressed with how well they have understood key concepts and proud of how much they want to learn new things in science.”
This week in science we have been learning about animal classifications- Omnivores, Carnivores and Herbivores. We used a Venn diagram to classify different animals, after discussing what food they eat.
