Setting the context Background information Ask: How do animals in zoos get their food? What do animals that don’t have people to look after them do to get food? Wild animals have to find their own food. In zoos, zoo keepers ensure that the food the animals are given is like the food they would eat in the wild. They also feed the animals as often as they would find food in the wild. Plant-eating animals are fed every day. Meat-eating animals are fed less often. Introducing the book This book is called ‘Food For Animals’. It is a report that tells us how animals get food in the wild. It then contrasts this with how the same sort of animals get their food in zoos.

Responding to text Children could make a radio interview explaining the pros and cons of animals living in the wild and living in a zoo. This could be done from the point of view of one of the animals in the book. Children could compare and contrast the way an animal not featured in the book (e.g. a goldfish) gets food in the wild or in captivity. Assessment Can the child: compare and contrast how animals get food in the wild and in zoos? use and index? monitor their own reading? Children could build their vocabulary by making a concentration game about the book by writing each animal’s name and what they eat on separate cards.
