A fun resource to help elementary school kids to start thinking about the classification of animals. After reading "The Night at the Museum" students must design where the animal specimens fit onto their very own floorplan of their Natural History Museum. Which animals can be grouped together? Why do we have Natural History Museums? This resourced has been used in a real classroom, for a real Science lesson and it works! Simple but fun, but allows children to start identifying the characteristics of living things and how amazing our world is.
The floorplan will need to be enlarged to A3 (Tabloid) paper. You will need to source your own copy of "The Night At The Museum" by Milan Trenc
