A look at a variety of domestic dogs that live in our homes, then learn about their cousins - wolves and foxes. In Canada, they live in packs and like to howl at night. There are also wild dogs in Australia and Africa. In Britain, the only wild dogs are foxes. Wolves are not found here any more, as they have been hunted in the past.

Classroom Ideas

Using a Venn diagram will allow pupils to identify the similarities and differences between wild and domestic dogs. Challenging pupils to list as many differences in dog features is a good way to highlight the variations within a species. Some pupils may also like to conduct independent research projects on dogs and how to look after them.
