The Birds and The Bees

Birds and the Bees - Media Image

Help students learn the basics of animal reproduction, with the aim to learn about:

  • Understanding the process of growth in animals
  • Exploring different lifecycles and parenting techniques of animals
  • Discovering different birth processes

As a fun engaging activity, we have provided a worksheet to get students thinking about the baby names of individual animals.

If you really want to challenge your students, we’ve also made a step-by-step sheet on how to make a nest box for birds.

Documents are suitable for all Primary ages with adaptations listed where necessary.
