KS1 Science Quiz - Animals - Human Development (Questions)

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 and human development timelines.

You are a human. There are a lot of things you will know about yourself - your name, where you live, your height, your family and friends. Like all animals, you were once a baby. But now you have developed and grown into a child. Also like animals, human children keep growing but, unlike animals, they go to school. Then they go to a bigger school. Maybe they go to college or university. All these questions are about children just like you and about how they develop as they grow up.
