Writing Activities: Year 2
Bee-eater birds are brightly coloured, fast and fierce. They get their name from their ability to catch bees, wasps and other flying insects in mid-air, using their long, down-curved beaks.
In this clip we will see how a flock of bee-eaters cleverly uses a passing elephant to help them get some tasty insects to munch on.
Write a set of instructions for a bee-eater bird on how to catch insects, using the technique in the video.
- Look out for a large animal, such as an elephant.
- Wait until it is walking through some long grass where insects might be hiding.
Wider curriculum idea
Choose your favourite image of a bee-eater bird from animals.sandiegozoo.org and draw it as accurately as possible. Use colours if you can!
