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.
In this reptiles worksheet, students identify and label the different parts of reptiles. They complete 10 short answer questions after reading the information provided in the worksheet.
Did you know that reptile species outnumber mammals? Reptiles include snakes, turtles, and lizards. Watch this video to learn a few more interesting facts.
Reptile and Amphibian Study Merit Badge Workbook
In this reptile and amphibian Boy Scout merit badge worksheet, students complete 7 pages of short answer questions about reptiles and amphibians. They identify the characteristics of each, tell where they are located, and make sketches or take photographs of at least four species.
