Great for a science station or to support your instruction, this activity gives students a chance to practice identifying and classifying insects and non-insects. A coordinating worksheet is provided for use in the center or as a stand alone activity or practice.
Students will be practicing the following Common Core State Standards:
SL.1.--participating in collaborative conversations with peers and
L.6--use words and phrases acquired through conversations,
reading and being read to, and responding to texts.
MD.3--Classify objects into given categories
Also, because the Common Core has not yet added science standards, your students would be practicing the following skills:
--Describing animals based on a given set of characteristics
--Compare animals based on a given set of characteristics and
look for similiarities and differences
