Activity 2

Now you have mastered writing a fact sheet about a parrot,  Can you find out about another exciting animal at Chester zoo?

Research the website to learn about one of the interesting animals and surprise us with a mini project of your own. This could be as tiny or as big as you like.


You may wish to use the previous activity sheet to write a fact file; make a small model or diorama with that animal, or simply paint/collage a picture of the animal.

Here are some ideas to help.




Don't forget to upload your fantastic work onto the blog! We can't wait to see how creative you have been!!
