For some general background about these units and how to use them, please read our teachers’ briefing.

Undertaking this unit of work, children imagine that they are the new owners of the ‘Herbivore Heaven’ café now set up in a restored quarry where wildlife is returning. Through developing menus and looking at the animals that may visit their café, children learn about food chains in a fun way. With excellent opportunities for Literacy in the development of menu cards and Science investigations, when finding out which leaves snails prefer to eat, this adapted unit gives a new slant to the Science 4b unit on habitats.
