A2 Animals Flyers Vocabulary Exercises

Exercise 1Exercise 2Extension

Did you know that babies of some animals have special names? Here is a match quiz with some of them.

Special Note:
Children often say puppy instead of pup for a baby dog, and they also often say kitty instead of kittten for a baby cat.

Write about your favourite animal. 
Find photos from magazines or online and describe your animal.

  • What do they look like?
  • Where do they live?
  • Is there a special name for the baby animal?
  • Do you know any interesting facts about them?
  • How different are they from other animals?

Here is an example:

zebra,animalMy favourite animal is a zebra. It has got black and white strips on its body that is different from any other animal.  They live in the savannah in Africa in a family group called a herd. A baby zebra is called a foal and they can walk just 20 minutes after they are born, and run after an hour.

They are one of the few wild horses left in the world today. Zebras are shorter than most other horses and their ears are larger. They communicate with each other by making strange sounds and through the position of their ears and tail.
