Can be used when learning about health and growth, especially when looking at teeth. Show the clip and then ask the children to come up with two sets of facts about human and feline teeth. What is different and what is the same? You could ask the children what kind of wild animal they would like to look after. Invite them to create a 'care manual' - what does the animal eat? how does the animal like to be groomed? how does the animal live in its natural habit?
