We are going to be learning about classification in Science this term. We will be focusing particularly on using classification keys to identify vertebrates and invertebrates. 


Watch the video below to find out more about these creatures!

Animal Classification for Children: Classifying Vertebrates and Invertebrates for Kids

Have a look at this classification key. Can you see how it works? You start at the top of the key and follow the lines according to what characteristics your creature has. Can you try making one of your own? If you do, upload a picture on Class Dojo and let your teacher see!
