WALT research an endangered animal

 

Open up the Powerpoint below where I will help to explain what the word 'endangered' means, using some animals as an example.

INVITE AN ANIMAL INTO YOUR HOME

To invite these animals into your home, you need to search for the animal on Google on a SmartPhone or tablet and click on their image in a white box like this one.

 

You may have used this feature already. If not here is a video showing you how to do it:

Choose an animal from this list to search and see them for yourself. If you like your new friend, take a photo with them and add it to your Purple Mash so that we can see.

  • Bengal Tiger
  • Cheetah
  • Giant Panda
  • Great White Shark
  • Leopard
  • Lion
  • Macaw
  • Turtle
