Sorting and classifying in science 7 Mar 2014

Lerryn class have been busily sorting animals into groups. They have learned some new scientific vocabulary: vertebrate and invertebrate. To help them decide whether an animal was a vertebrate, they used the internet to search for pictures of their skeletons.
Here are some of the interesting questions asked throughout the lesson:
Are starfish actually fish?
What kind of animal is a koala?
What is a crustacean?
Is a tortoise a reptile?
