Animal descriptions

Pupils of 3rd Grade have been working on descriptions of animals. We learnt these sentences to make our texts (oral and written):

- It's ...  big/small, tall/short, fast/slow...

- It's ...  yellow, green, brown, black, white,...

- It has got ... 2 legs, 4 legs, 2 arms, a long neck, a short tail, claws, a big body, 2 wings, 2 horns, 2 ears, ...

- It can ... / It can't ...   fly, swim, run, walk, jump, hunt,....


- It eats ...   fruit, fish, meat, plants, grass, insects, leaves,...


After some oral practice, we wrote compositions. We made animal descriptions and our classmates had to guess them:



















Cristina brought this funny book from the Natural History Museum, in London...



















...and we decided to create a similar one:





We used our books to play a guessing game in pairs:

        Has it got...?
           Yes, it has.
           No, it hasn't.
