Resources Garden Animals
Resource Preview Gardens can provide an excellent opportunity for the children to develop their skills and understanding across the curriculum. Working in science, the children can identify some of the different classes of animals that might make a garden their home such as mammals, birds and insects. They can practise grouping and classifying animals by their characteristics and build databases of animals that they have identified. The children can explore animals that live in different habitats in a garden such as under a garden log and on some bushes.

The children can also develop art and design skills by practising drawing and painting examples of garden animals using a variety of media such as charcoal, water colours and pastels. They can produce sculptures of animals that might live in a garden by collecting and using natural materials such as leaves, twigs and pebbles.
