This week in science the children classified plants and animals into various groups based on various criteria.  Groups decided their own criteria and then shared their groupings with the class.

This team used the groups plants, amphibians, insects, arachnids, mammals reptiles and sort the pictures.



This team sorted the pictures into dangerous to humans, not dangerous to humans, sometimes dangerous and don't know...yet!

This team sorted the pictures into producers and consumers, linking their learning back to a food chain pyramid that they had looked at earlier in the term.

This team sorted the pictures into harmless, dangerous and both.
