Lions, elephants and polar bears are great examples of how living things have a variety of external features (AC Biology Year1). Using the World Mammals Gallery, this program encourages students to build a vocabulary of scientific language using terms and names to describe living things and the functions of their various parts. Students can also investigate the relationships between living things and their physical surroundings and look at familiar animals and their habitats.
The gallery provides a stimulating environment for telling stories. It provides opportunities to create short imaginative texts.
