Animals - Parts of Animal Bodies
Birds have wings rather than arms. Wings help birds to fly.

Animals - Parts of Animal Bodies

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 the shape and main parts of animal bodies.

Animals are not all the same shape. Birds have wings. Most birds can fly. Fish swim - they do not have legs. But all animals have the main parts of a head and a body. The shape of an animal's body tells you a lot about where it lives. How much do you know about how animals look? What do you know about the main parts of different animals?
