KS1 Science 'Staying Alive' topic, sorting tasks / activities

KS1 Science 'Staying Alive' topic, sorting tasks / activities

Resources made for Science Week with a focus on ‘Staying Alive’. We learnt about the difference between living and non living things, that animals including humans grow from babies into adults, that some animals grow inside their mother while others hatch from an egg, children kept a food journal for later learning about a balanced diet. Before learning about basic needs, children attempted to complete a mind map, adding to this later. Living / Not Living / Never Lived sorting activity / workstation task What do you call a baby… table to complete 5 day food journal - table for students to complete (Monday to Friday) Egg or Mum? Sorting activity / workstation task - did this animal grow inside its mother or hatch from an egg? Human basic needs - male and female mind map activity, pupils to add what is essential for human life. Designed for KS1 / KS2 children with autism but also suitable for mainstream learners or older learners with SEN.

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 :)
