Animals - Pets (Identifying)

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 animals and identifying and naming well-known pets.

Do you have a pet animal? What is its name? Lots of families have well-known pets that you could identify. Some people have lots of cats and dogs. Other people have horses. Other people have smaller animals, like rabbits and hamsters. A few people have not so well-known pets that you might not be able to identify, like scorpions or lizards. Why do so many people - old and young - keep a pet? How do you look after a pet? Can you name these pets?
