Animals, Including Humans

This resource provides a selection of lesson plans, worksheets and teachers notes relating to Animals, including humans at Year Four. They include activities which look at food groups, healthy balanced diets and explore the human digestive system and how food is transported around the body. Ideas are also provided for lessons where children compare diets of herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and investigate teeth and what causes decay. There are also activities which look closely at food chains and food webs. Provided by Hamilton Trust, these sessions have been written in line with the new national curriculum (published in 2013).

The Hamilton website also hosts a wealth of other free resources.
