'WHAT DOES OUR DEEPER WILD SELF LOOK LIKE?' C' CLASS WONDERED...


And this is what we ended up to: a (poor) boy whose body consists of different animal parts!

In fact, learning and practising animal vocabulary is the main aim of our current lessons, which led us to visit www.buildyourwildself.com, an extraordinary site developed by New York Zoos and Aquarium in order to urge children to learn more about many species of animals from all around the world.

This is where we were given the chance to create the 'animal' of the picture and practise pronouncing its parts, as the labels indicate. We even chose its natural habitat, practising again some target vocabulary. After we finished editing our image, we read the provided brief descriptions of the form and function of each animal part we had chosen.

So why waste time? Enter this site, discover your (really) wild self and find out how much vocabulary you know!
