Water flea

A short discussion topic, suitable for years 5 and 6, linking with the topic ‘living things and habitats’. This is a fantastic photo of a water flea, showing the clutch of eggs in its brood chamber visible through its transparent body.

This ten-minute activity, linking to speaking and listening, is ideal for use at the beginning of the day or during transition times, such as after lunch. Pupils will be challenged to guess what the image is by answering the questions shown on the first slide of the PowerPoint. This could be done on the whiteboard or through discussion with a partner. Once pupils have finished, click through to the next slide to reveal the answers. This discussion topic is also suitable for P6 and P7
