Science: Animal Classification

In Science we have been busy learning how to classify animals. We started off completing an activity where we had to classify lots of pictures of animals into groups. The first two groups we needed to sort our animals into were vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones and Invertebrates are animals without backbones. We then needed to sort our vertebrates group into a further five groups. A description of these five groups can be found below.
