An animated sequence that explores the varied diets of a range of animals. The differences between carnivores, herbivores and omnivores are shown and the animals that appear in the clip are grouped according to what they eat. This clip is useful as introduction to a topic about food and its associated vocabulary.
Pupils could investigate their playground for evidence of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Can they find examples of each type of animal? The children could sketch or take digital photographs of the creatures they identify. For instance they might find herbivores such as snails, carnivores such as spiders, or omnivores such as magpies or gulls.
