Science Activity Term 5 Week 3

On your daily walk, record any invertebrates you have seen. Vertebrates are animals that do not have a backbone. Use “Activity Sheet Invertebrate Hunt” to support you. You don’t need to print out the document, you can use a plain piece of paper to record your findings. The “Classification Sheet” might help to identify different invertebrates.
When you are back at home, make your own classification keys to represent these invertebrates. Look at the PDF document “Invertebrates Classification Key” for an example.
Finally, use the “Activity Sheet Invertebrate Identification” and “Invertebrate Classification Word Mat” to explain in detail one invertebrate you have found on your daily walk.
Challenge: Can you make classification keys that compares invertebrates to vertebrates? This will link to last week’s work.
