Now that you took a look at all the material you are ready to take the
quiz created by the best scientist experts.
Click here to start the quiz.

Remember to read every question carefully and good luck!!!!

Part 3
You will be assigned to work in pairs by your teacher. In pairs you

will create a leaflet to hand in to the visitors. Add the


following items to the leaflet:

• title (name of the animal or plant you have chosen)


• draw digestive or respiratory system (neat, colourful)
• label parts (correct spelling, neat, and clear)
• Add “Did you know facts” for example: Did you know that
plants use energy from the sun to change carbon dioxide
(CO2 - carbon and oxygen) and water (H2O- hydrogen and
oxygen) into starches and sugars. This is called
photosynthesis.
• Take a look at this leaflet as an example.
• Then you will give a presentation explaning you leaflet to the
rest of the class.

To complete this task the following links may also help you:

• Digestive Systems covers vertebrates, sharks, birds, rabits,


horses, koalas, cattle, deer, sheep: the descriptions are brief,
but there are some good line drawings of the digestive
systems.
