Sheep Pig

Topic: 2C Variation

Children will find out that an animal can have many different appearances. As cats can come in many different colours and sizes so too can other animals. Not all sheep are woolly and not all pigs are pink and smooth, there is variation.

In this activity children will be encouraged to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of adaptation, whilst considering a variety of points of view e.g. a farmer, a scientist, a consumer.
