#Lesson2BalancedDiets

This healthy eating Year 3 Science lesson takes a closer look at what nutrients the human body needs to stay alive and healthy, as well as the proportions of different food groups we should consume.

After looking in detail at each of the food groups, your class can then put their understanding to the test as they identify foods in different groups and think about how people on restricted diets, such as vegetarians or coeliacs, can get the nutrients they need.

#Lesson3AnimalDiets

Now that your class know exactly what humans need to eat to stay healthy, your class can look at the animal kingdom and explore what animals eat.

Using terms such as 'herbivore', 'carnivore', 'omnivore', 'predator' and 'prey', your class will investigate the diets of a range of animals from around the world.

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets

#Lesson4PetInvestigation

This lesson allows your class to carry out an investigation to find out what foods pets eat, asking questions and thinking about how they will gather the information before carrying out their investigations, and using tally charts and pictograms (or bar graphs) to gather data and present what they have found out.

And if you don't have time for an investigation, use the pre-prepared results instead!

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Results sheet
#Lesson5Skeletons

This lesson starts by assessing what children already know about bones and skeletons before looking at the human skeleton in more detail.

They will identify and name some of the major bones in the human body and then go on to think about how human skeletons are similar to or different from those of other vertebrates.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Picture cards
  • Skeleton sheet
#Lesson6SupportandProtection

This lesson starts by encouraging your class to think about how useful skeletons are for stopping us being puddles of skin and muscle!

It then goes on to explore how the skeleton not only supports our bodies but also protects some of our major organs.

It also explores how invertebrates without skeletons are protected and supported, such as with exoskeletons and shells.

  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Picture cards
