Animal Classification

This week, our class learned about animal classes. We made anchor charts to organize the facts that we learned. Later, we added examples of animals in each class to our charts, but of course I forgot to take a picture of our completed charts! We learned what it meant to be warm-blooded or cold-blooded and vertebrates or invertebrates.

On Friday, we did a little writing activity. Each student picked an animal, then had to tell which class that animal belongs in, and describe that animal. They loved getting to pick whatever animal they wanted and using their new big words!

A cat is a mammal. They are warm-blooded. They have a backbone. Cats are good.

This one had a harder time separating his thoughts into sentences, but he got the facts in there! He also included that most are "dangis" or dangerous. He was very into learning which animals were poisonous  and which weren't!

Now I get to spend the weekend finishing report cards and enjoying this short burst of fall weather before it goes back to being 75 next week! Got to love Oklahoma weather! Happy weekend!
