The New Testaments
Ready to go home!
In science we are starting to study animal groups. Today we looked at classifying mammals, reptiles and amphibians. We are learning their traits by using picture vocabulary. I think it is more important to have images in the kids' brains than just words.
If you would like a copy of the Animal Vocabulary sheet that I use with my students, you can download it HERE. I use simple pictures for each category. (draw a baby, a head with hair, a thermometer for warm blooded- for mammals, etc.)
If you want to engage your student a little more, check out this website! It's all about the different species of animals. It has pictures, videos, and lots of neat information!
EXTRA CREDIT: Worth $1 Cub Cash for every piece of information that you bring to school about the different species (mammals, reptiles and amphibians) that you found on this website. Bring in 5 facts, that's $5 Cub Cash!!
