Y3 Investigating What Pets Eat

Pupils carry out a survey to find out which pets are the most popular in their school. Pupils place these results into a bar/pictograph. Pupils then research the types of foods that would be required to feed these pets. They try to explain what they have discovered and how the diets of a variety of pets differ between each other and that of humans.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition
  • NaG - pupils might compare and contrast the diets of different animals (including their pets)
  • WS - pupils should ask relevant questions and use different types of scientific enquiries to answer them; record findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts, and tables
