Year 1 children could use the plush toys to compare and contrast fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, describing how they identify and group them.
Year 3 children could use the fossil samples to observe and discuss different kinds of animals and plants, the fossils of which we find in sedimentary rock. They could discuss how fossils are formed.
Year 6 children could use the resources to discover how animals are adapted to their environments. For example, comparing how some species have adapted over generations to survive in extreme conditions. They might investigate why the triop eggs in the kit can remain dormant for years, and what happens to the eggs when they are put into water.
