How different are animals to humans?

The Plasma literacy group are working on their own mini inquiries.

They have selected a number of animals to investigate. Our inquiry into the power of our own bodies has inspired this reading group to inquire about animals.

The cat team is investigating the following questions.

Are cats intestines different to ours?
How long does it take for them to digest food?

"Coco has found out that a female cat is either called a Molly or a queen."
"Emily research led her to the fact that all male cats are called Toms."

We also have a team investigating Gorilla. They are keen to find out the following.

Do they have the same number of bones?
How much bigger are gorillas to humans.

Nuala is interested in sharks. "An interesting fact about sharks is that they are partially warm blooded!"

The shark team is also interested in what a shark brain looks like.

There is also a humming bird team that is interested in the following questions.

Why can they fly backwards and upside down?

What is a hummingbird?
