Classroom Ideas

Before going into their local environments to investigate animals in their habitats, this clip could be used to demonstrate how children can use the sense of listening to identify different animals. It could also be used to stimulate discussion at the start of a lesson relating to how different animals live together in a particular place. Learning could be extended by asking children why animals might need to be heard in the rainforest.
