Animals - Growth from Babies to Adults

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with animal growth.

One of the things that you have found out in science is that all animals grow. They get bigger. Sometimes the adults can look quite different to the babies. Some animals hatch from eggs. Birds do this. Baby birds, or chicks, hatch from eggs. Then they grow into adult birds like chickens. Let's find out more about young animals and how they grow up.
