Farm Animal Facts

This activity is designed for Year 5 pupils as part of the Science Topic, "All living things and their habitat". The children will briefly look at where food comes from (plants and animals) and types of farming in the UK. The PowerPoint, teacher notes and "Farm Animal Facts" game allow pupils to learn fun facts related to the life cycle of farm animals. Pupils will learn the difference between mammal and bird life cycles as well as explore extinction and endangered animals in relation to farm animals. In addition pupils will think about the people who look after farm animals and what it is like to work on a farm.
