This powerpoint gives a general background about animal species in the world, has an example of a classification of an animal.
then looks at how we classify them - plants and animals
vertebrates and invertebrates - this then branches off into the 5 main vetebrate and what makes them a mammal, fish, bird, reptile or amphibian.
Then it branches off the invetebrate into arachnid, molluscs and insects and what makes them these things.
A classification chart (vertebrates) is at the end and i would give them this to copy into their books to create their own classification key.
As a challenge i would get them to add in more questions to seperate the animals further.
The animsla i have included are african animals as that is our topic but could easily be swapped for other animals and it would still work
African art - textiles
