The fourth in a series of lessons to develop children's knowledge about 'Living Things and Their Habitats,' for the 2014 primary curriculum. Links to coverage of the curriculum are explicit in the planning.
We are learning to use a classification key to identify the 5 vertebrate groups.
An interesting 'fact or fiction' starter to intrigue children and develop their scientific discussions.
Recaps, revisits and builds on prior learning on living things, vertebrate and invertebrates.
Develop's children's scientific knowledge about grouping animals in different ways and looks at the specific scientific characteristics of the 5 vertebrate groups, as well as examples.
Lots of 'mastery' thinking required through the questions posed, for deepening and mastering learning.
Choice of 3 differentiated follow up activities (all of which are provided as well as being explained on the PowerPoint).
A further extension activity is also provided.
