Reptiles and Amphibians
Introduce your class to various reptiles and amphibians. They will meet and identify a representative from each of the four major reptile families, then learn about and discuss reptile characteristics. Next, they will identify and discuss the differences and similarities between reptiles and amphibians.
3rd - 4th Science
Reptile and Amphibian Anatomy
Learners identify and interpret the various differences between reptiles and amphibians. Then they draw an amphibian and reptile and correctly label their body parts. Students also invent new reptiles and amphibians, sketch how they would look and their habitats, and finally, write a story about their imaginary creature.
4th - 12th Science
Worksheet: Evolutionary Detectives
Begin with an informational text, "Reptiles and Amphibians through the Ages," and then research online about the evolutionary development of a modern frog. Look at drawings of ancestor's skeletons and list the organisms on the geologic time scale.

Reptiles and Amphibians
Fourth graders explore biology by viewing animal videos in class. In this amphibian and reptile lesson, 4th graders identify the key differences between reptiles, amphibians and other animal classifications. Students view video clips in class and examine live specimens with their classmates.
4th Visual & Performing Arts
Creating a Dichotomous Key for Amphibians
Students are introduced to the purpose of dichotomous keys and create one together as a class. In groups, they use a digital atlas to examine the different types of amphibians in Idaho. Using this information, they make their own dichotomous key and discuss the amphibians characteristics.
9th - Higher Ed Science
Classification of Animals
This is one of the better presentations I've seen on the classification of animals. Youngsters view slides that introduce the characteristics of each of the animals groups through the use of photographs and text. Then, they are given examples of animals and must determine the correct classification.
