Students will be grouped into 5 different groups. Each group will be assigned one of five vertebrates; mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians.
From start to finish they will complete a structure PowerPoint with guided practice, choose an animal within their assigned category to research with their group, complete the second research template, and finally create a large 2-D diorama on a poster. The material covers structures and functions of animals, and also different body systems. Materials are editable to best fit your needs.
