LEARNING to make a difference

Week 4

Week 4 Science Task


LO: To know the life expectancies of different animals.


So far, we have thought about the timeline of human life and what happens when we reach old age. Today, we are going to look at the life expectancies of different animals. A life expectancy is how long a particular animal is expected to live.

Have a look at these different life expectancies. Have a discussion with somebody in your house; do any of these surprise you? Which animal has the longest life expectancy? Why animal has the shortest life expectancy? Maybe if you have access to their internet you could research some different animals and find out their life expectancy.
