The Pod

The Pod

Question time!

What are the creatures in the photograph?

What is a ‘pod’?

How did the photographer take this picture?

How many animals do you think are in this ‘pod’?

What are they doing in the photo?

Why do they stick together like this?

Do any other land/sea animals do something similar?

Where in the world would you find creatures such as these?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of another animal that lives/moves/hunts as part of a group?

Story starter!

The pod travelled everywhere together. Moving as one through the ice-cold, northern waters, they began to stalk their prey…

Sentence challenge!

The killer whales swam through the water.

Can you identify the verb in my sentence?

Can you use a more interesting verb?

Can you improve this sentence in any other ways? You might ad an adverb, or some adjectives to describe the water.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

It was a cold day. The creatures went through the water. They stuck together. That was a good thing.
