Animal classification charts

The girls have worked on Animal Classification this week. They have drawn and annotated their chart
We discussed how they originally sorted their buttons (see here) using many different methods and that we can sort the animal kingdom the same way.

We used Montessori Print Shop's Endothermic or Ectothermicsorting lesson,
Oviparous or Viviparous,
Herbivore, Carnivore or Omnivore,
and their Nocturnal or Diurnal lessons
These are great activities which come with an explanatory sheet, sorting exercise and control chart. The photos as always are amazing and the girls were really impressed with the work and shocked at some of the results (Sunflower couldn't believe some of the nocturnal animals)

We followed up with some narration and some animal research work.
Some product was provided free to me for the purpose of review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.
