Young Animals
Children are sometimes called kids, but did you know that baby goats are also called kids?

Young Animals

Young animals have special names given to them. Calling them 'baby animals' or just 'babies' makes sense and will be understood, but this enjoyable picture quiz expands KS1 children’s vocabulary and introduces them to the names given to young animals. It will develop their English and literacy skills and enable them to add some colour and variety to their stories and writing.

We can group animals and people by age. If we talk about ‘children’, we know they are under twelve years old. There are lots of words to describe young animals and people.
