Excellent Introduction

I used this lesson with my two girls, kinder and 2nd grade. It took us three lessons over one week. It was a great intro to vertebrates/invertebrates and the classes within. They loved the sorting assignment. And they really came away with a nice, basic understanding of animal classification.

Great for my project!

My little one wanted to make a globe. She made it out of paper mache, painted it blue, then added the continents from this package. It was perfect!

The kids loved this lesson. I believe they learned a lot about our animal kingdom while we were completing this lesson.
