Year 4 Kingfisher investigates animal lives

October 19, 2017

In Science, Kingfishers have been using classification keys to group animals such as mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles and fish. We then used them to identify and name animals we didn’t know. In order to do this, we have been learning and using lots of key science vocabulary.
Our big challenge this week was to create our own keys! We started with animal picture cards and had to look at them carefully to notice similarities and differences. We also had to think about anything else we knew such as which habitat the animal lives in or whether it is a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore.
We used lots of teamwork and shared ideas to complete the keys.
