Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

Animal Classification – Sorting Activity and Worksheets

This is a great whole class teaching activity while children work in groups to identify different groups of animals. Each and every group is given a full set of flash cards, key headings and features to sort out into vertebrates, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs, insects and minibeasts while cooperatively making decisions and discussing the different possibilities. You can provide each group with 4 x A3 sheets of paper (attached together) and glue sticks/ blu tack to create group posters in order to share and present findings with the rest of the class….a lot more discussions there! As follow up activities, I have created a number of charts to use key information/clues to identify animal groups as well as worksheets: **Vertebrates – mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Table: Recording animal features - tick or colour • Facts about mammals: Complete sentences using word bank – and label/name animals (pictures). • Facts about birds: Complete sentences using word bank – and name where (place) they mostly live. • Facts about fish: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about reptiles: Complete sentences using word bank – and illustrate skin type/pattern. • Facts about amphibians: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about sea mammals: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Write the names of these animals (from list) in the correct group. **Invertebrates – molluscs, crustaceans, insects, minibeast : ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Challenge! Chart: Sort and group each question and animal groups. Place them in the correct order to complete the chart (cut and paste activity). • Facts about molluscs: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. • Facts about crustaceans: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts. **Invertebrates – insects and minibeasts: ** • Chart: Answer the questions to identify each group of animals. Write the name of each group within the key. • Facts about insects and minibeasts: Complete sentences using word bank - and label body parts of a mosquito. • Match each group of animals (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects) with a place where they are mostly likely to live (illustrations of different environments). Includes 1 Word Mat with key animal features Thanks for looking :)

Zoo Animal Picture Memory

Zoo Animal Picture Memory

MORE THAN JUST A MEMORY GAME!! Though this was created as a memory game, its cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities, games and study aides. Print these pages out double-sided. This will make the page containing a colorful design the cover, or top, of the cards. Laminate the printed sheets to make for more durable playing cards (printing with card stock can also help with durability). Cut the cards along the black line. Once cut, mix the cards up, lay them out, and take turns flipping cards over. Kids will be exercising their memory, learning, and having fun while doing so! :)

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!

Pet Care Assembly for Key Stage I

Pet Care Assembly for Key Stage I

Pet Care Assembly for Key Stage I This script is a totally moveable feast! The cast consists of Narrator (Class Teacher) plus 30 pets - the number and type of pets can, of course, be changed to match any class requirement. Although it is full of humorous moments, the message behind it is a serious one - that of taking the business of pet care itself seriously. The length of this performance is around 10 - 15 minutes *plus - allowing for ‘parade’ and ‘additions’ from children themselves i.e. information about their particular pets. It could potentially be double this length depending on how much additional information and suggested poetry is included. Great fun. Would love to see this performed! Sample Text: Narrator: You see, pets do take a lot of looking after. They are a big responsibility! (Pauses) What do you think is the most important part of looking after a pet? Child 4: Making it happy? Narrator: Correct! Child 5: And healthy! Narrator: Well done! So, you have to do a lot of homework before you even choose a pet. Child 6: Sounds like being at school! Child 7: Having a pet is meant to be fun! Narrator: But it’s no fun for your pet if it’s not looked after properly. Take that Great Dane, for example. (‘Great Dane’ stands up) Child 8: He’d take a lot of feeding! Narrator: Correct! Big dogs like big meals! But that’s not all! Child 9: He’ll need a lot of exercise! Child 10: Long walks! Narrator: Two or three times a day! He won’t want to be left inside by himself all day! (Great Dane shakes his head in agreement and sits down) Narrator: Animals have needs, just like us! And we need to respect their needs! Maybe someone could share with us, how they look after their pet? Child 11: I have two guinea pigs called Bill and Ben! Narrator: Two guinea pigs? Child 11: Yes, they like company! Narrator: And where do you keep them? Child 11: In a hutch with a nice grassy run. They also have cardboard boxes and pipes to hide in if they get frightened.
