I love the idea for these, but birds are accidentally labelled as ‘mammals’.
Thanks, Liam.

Hi Liam,

Thanks for pointing that out. We’ve updated the resource with “Essential for all birds”. Feel free to download the updated resource.

Thanks again,

Thank you for creating this resource.
Can you also make word wall cards using a wider range of pets, hermit crabs, rat, snake, guinea pig etc and of course their needs to survive.
Thanks Karen

Hi Karen.

No problem at all. On each word wall card, would you like a picture of the animal and a word that relates to their needs to survive?

Kind regards,
