Faeces Science – Carnivores, Herbivores and Omnivores

I believe that practical and contextual learning is a very important part of education, especially during science.

Whilst teaching in a Year 1 class I had the opportunity to teach the topic of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores in science. During this, children had the opportunity to be a naturalist, like David Attenborough, and try and find which faeces belonged to which animal by dissecting the fake faeces.

Children were using inquiry skills and were using a variety of other scientific skills throughout. All children found it extremely enjoyable and made great progress, applying the knowledge that they had used in previous lessons.

TARGET: Continue to use contextual learning.
