Primary Worksheets: Red Panda

Primary worksheets on the topic of the red panda designed for primary school students. A basic passage with questions at the end to answer, testing the students comprehension levels.

The red panda, also known as the ‘lesser pandas’ or ‘firefoxes’, is a mammal that is actually not related to the giant panda. They share a similar name and love for bamboo, but they are more closely related to weasels, racoons, and skunks.

The red panda is well known for its round face, red and black fur, and a bushy ringed tail. They are about the same size as a house cat, with their bodies growing up to around 60cm in length and their tails growing up to around 50cm in length.

Basic Tips

When teaching a new concept to a student, make it as visual as possible. Concepts become more comprehensible. A standard lesson should follow this basic structure:

  • Introduction: gather what knowledge the students have on the topic. Assess and evaluate your level to base how much assistance they require throughout the lesson
  • Concept: teaching the actual topic of the lesson. Highlight the difficulty the students are having and apply the appropriate action. For example, if they do not understand the meaning of a word, get them to highlight it for further studying in the future.
  • Evaluation: conclude the lesson by getting the students to feedback what you have taught. Ensure they comprehend the topic and know the main points.

Build the confidence level of students through active participation. Encourage projects for them to do what they have learnt into practical use. The more engaging the lesson is, the better the result.
