Are you teaching about the classification of vertebrate or invertebrate animals? This printable project can be used for distance learning. This fun project helps children practice sorting skills at a higher level using a taxonomy. The teacher will begin by modeling the sorting process on an overhead projector. Then the children have a fun classifying project using ALIENS! Finally, there is a vertebrate and invertebrate sorting page for students to complete independently. Select the sheet depending on which unit you are teaching.
