Investigating Animal Diets

Your home learning project is an investigation.

Use  internet to search for the National Geographic website and find the animal fact page. Choose 3 different animals to research, 1 herbivore, 1 carnivore and 1 omnivore.

Find the following  information:

Animal Name
Type (mammal, reptile, etc.)
Habitat (Where are they found?)
Diet (carnivore, herbivore or omnivore)
Diet facts (What do they eat?)

 

Good Luck
