Next: compare and contrast the nose of the animals to a human’s nose.

See the example below:





 you are finding differences – try to research why that is and include this on your journal page.




Can you explain and justify which animal has the best one on your page.


Something easier?

Make a list of interesting facts about 1 animal’s body part e.g.

A dolphin does not have a nose.

A dolphin cannot smell.

A dolphin has one nostril but it is their blowhole at the top of their head.

A dolphin makes up for their poor sense of smell with their strong taste.
