Animal riddles

In Class 1 and 2 we have been learning about animals around the world.

We would like you to write some riddles about animals.  Try to include some of the scientific vocabulary we have been using e.g. predator, prey, habitat, carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, vertebrate and invertebrate.  You may want to create a picture of your animal in its habitat.

Here are some examples written by some Year 1s recently:

I am bigger than an ant but I am smaller than a rhino

I live on the sandy, rocky beach

I have two eyes and I have a hard shell

I crawl and I make no sound

I am an invertebrate and an omnivore

If you come near me, I might pinch you!
