Do you love animals? This animal science class is a great way to learn about some of the most amazing animals of the world. Students get to hold, feed, dissect and study animals in this fascinating science class. Along with the study of thes amazing creatures, students will create amazing artwork each week that represents the animal studied.
Our study will start with mammals. Mammals are one of the 6 main classes of animals. What are the characteristics of a mammal? Is is a live birth? Warm blooded? What else makes a mammal uniquely a mammal?
Next on our animal adventure are birds! Birds are animals that have feathers and that are born out of hard-shelled eggs. Some people think that what makes an animal a bird is its wings. Bats have wings. Flies have wings. Bats and flies are not birds. So what makes an animal a bird? Is it the bill? They lay eggs? They can fly? Come to class and find out!
Make sure you come to class when we have our special guest come with local birds and reptiles to share with our class!
Fish are next on our exploration! Find out what distinguishes fish from the other animal classes!
Can you guess our next animal class? An animal with scaly skin, they are cold blooded and are born on land. Reptiles!
There are more than 4,000 different species of our next class of animals including frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians or blindworms; the amphibian class.
Our last group to study are anthropods! Any animals that have more than four, jointed legs are arthropods. Insects, spiders and crustaceans all belong to this class of animals.
In this class kids will have the opportunity to see and handle or observe a rabbit, guinea pig, tarantula, hermit crab, turtle, fish, frogs and a scorpion as they learn about each animal class and then create their art project to take home and remember all of the wonderful attributes of our animal kingdom!
