Teacher shows a picture of animal eating. Pupils are told to point out whether the animal displayed is a herbivore . frog. and asks pupils what is the relationship between the 2 animals. Teacher explains how those traits/ characteri stics compliment the different categories of animals 4. Carnivore eats meat 2.
