PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This mini unit teaches students all about classifying organisms.

First, students learn what classification is and why it is important. Then students learn the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates. Breaking the category of vertebrates into 5 small categories teaches students how to further classify organisms. Lastly, students learn about the organisms that are difficult to put into these specific categories.

Students use science process skills and cooperative learning to achieve learning goals.

Included in this mini unit:
- Lesson plans complete with all directions
- Rubric and directions for the final product
- Venn diagram template
- Pros and cons printable
- Supplemental vocabulary choice activity
- A worksheet
- "Oddball cards" with information on the platypus
