The Grade Two classes will be participating in a full day workshop on simple classification of animals. We will be touring the zoo while identifying and describing major physical characteristics of different types of animals. We will learn to identify ways in which animals are helpful to, and ways in which they meet the needs of, living things, including humans, to explain why humans should protect animals and the places where they live. Through observing the animals we will learn to use appropriate science and technology vocabulary, including life cycle, migration, adaptation, body coverings, and classify animals into their groups (mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, and insects). We are looking forward to a great day of exploring the zoo and the amazing animals!
