Other curriculum learning for all year groups 

 

Inventing a new climate for an animal to live in 

How to do it

Imagine that your favourite animal must now live in a new climate. How might it adapt and change? This activity is about creating a new climate  and habitat for your chosen animal.  

Think about: 

• The animal that you are going to choose. It could be a woodland, wild or marine animal or mammal 

• Consider where the animal lives now and why it lives there. Animals are adapted to where they live, and you can see this by what they  look like and what they eat or hunt 

• Now imagine a new climate. What would the weather be like? Is there a new type of weather that you could invent? Your climate may still  change with the seasons and you could even invent new seasons!  

• Then consider how your animal could adapt to this climate. What would they look like? How would their coat, teeth, claws etc. need to be  changed to fit in with the climate? 

You could: 

• Draw your climate and your animal in it. You might want to label your animal and give reasons for why they have adapted

• Write about your climate and animal using the format of a non-chronological report with subheadings, pictures, and diagrams 

What you will learn 

Inventing a new climate will make you: 

• Improve your research skills 

• Improve your art skills  

• Help you to use your imagination

Find out about the planets – create a model or picture   

How to do it

Get started by: 

• Researching the planets using the internet or books. This will help you decide if you want to focus on one planet or the whole of the solar  system. You might want to make notes of your findings  

• Asking someone from your family to go outside with you when it is dark and see if you can identify some of the constellations

• Deciding whether you are going to draw or paint a picture or create a 3D model 

A 2D planet 

• You can use card or paper to create your image. Draw around a small plate and then draw an outline of your planet or planets and then fill  in with colour. Take care to copy the colours from the information that you have researched  

• Use paints or coloured pencils to represent what you might see on the planet. You will have researched what the different planets have  already e.g. Earth has land and sea 

A 3D planet 

• A 3D model will take you a bit longer to create and you will need to think about what materials you can find to help you make it. There are  plenty of different ideas on the internet to help you  

• The ideal objects to make the planets are Styrofoam balls, but these may not be available. You could use tennis balls, small rubber balls  or plasticine rolled into a circle. Always ask permission before you use these! 

• To make your planet seem realistic you need to paint it, copying the colours accurately 

What you will learn 

Creating your planets will help you to: 

• Find out more about the solar system 

• Improve your DT and art skills
