KS2 On the Move

Unit 1: What makes animals move?

What about big animal journeys?

Apart from moving to eat and stay away from danger, some animals travel thousands of miles. Discuss with pupils possible reasons for these long journeys. Introduce the topic  MIGRATION, define the meaning for the children.  Every winter in the UK local starling populations are boosted by birds from the continent. Watch the following clips and ask pupils to suggest possible reasons for this migration.  If you live near Belfast, you can attend a starling watch organised by the Belfast City Council.
