Which is your favourite minibeast? Favourite is the one you like best.

Can you guess mine?


Make your own tally chart.

Think of three minibeasts you have learned about. (Tell your grown up).

Ask your family/friends the same question: Which minibeast they like best out

of the three?

You will need a sheet of paper and a pencil.

Choose your own three minibeasts, write the names or draw pictures of them

and make your own chart.

Remember to use your phonics to sound out the words.

Here is a model of a tally chart. Kindly ask your grown up to help you draw the chart.

Minibeasts -- Tally - Number




Do a tally for each answer in front of the name of the minibeast. After the survey,

add up the numbers to see the most popular insect.

Which minibeast has the biggest number? Tell your grown up.

Have fun!

I hope you enjoy all the activities.
