We’re Wild about Animals
This week kicked off our animal unit in science which includes classifying animals and finding similar and different traits among them. The students were excited to dive in and start exploring. The class formed groups, and had animal cards to categorize however they wanted.  Our part-time zoologists wrote their findings in their science journals making sure to keep outstanding notes. 

Many arranged them by habitat, their species, and a couple groups sorted them by their favorite animals or how they looked. The class had a great time finding different combinations and had wonderful scientific conversations about what classifies an animal as a mammal, reptile, amphibian, bird, fish, vertebrate, or invertebrate.

 Working together to find different combinations
They sorted by species type.

They are so proud of their work!
