· identify what food animals eat.
· ask and answer basic questions.
1. Make one copy of worksheet (pictures of animals and food) per group.
2. Enlarge the pictures cards to make flashcards.
1. To review the names of animals, for example: cat, rooster, goat, parrot, dog, tiger, the teacher holds up the pictures cards and asks the pupils to name the animals.
2. Review the food the same way using pictures cards, for example -fish, grain, grass, nuts, bone, meat.
3. The teacher puts the pupils into pairs/small groups. Each group receives a handout of the animal and food pictures which they cut up. The pupils then match the animals to what food they eat. There can be more than one answer.
4. After the pupils have done the matching, the teacher asks the pupils if they can think of any questions they can make about the pictures for example, ‘What does a cat eat?’
5. The pupils briefly drill the question and answer forms and then work in their pairs/small groups to ask and answer the questions about the different animals.
Group activity: Pupils can use the pictures to make mini books and write simple sentences about what food each animal eats.
For steps 5, the teacher can ask “Which animal eats fish?” Pupils answer “A cat eats fish.” Pupils practise the sentence pattern orally.
Collect the mini books created by the pupils to put in the class Reading Corner.
