Animal Classification

Present information about the classification of animals. After participating in the teacher-led discussion about scientific names, small groups devise their own way of classifying everyday objects present in the classroom, developing two-part names for several objects in the room. While the lesson plan cites standards for narrative writing, the closest the activity comes to these standards is in an extension activity. The focus is on learning about scientific names.
