Virtual Field Trips — Amazing Animals
For Grades 4 and 6
We invite you to join our team at Roper Mountain as we work together to develop a new animal classification display exhibit! Students will observe amazing animals, make observations about the animals, and use them to classify each animal based on its characteristics.
Obtain and communicate information about the characteristics of plants and animals to develop models which classify plants as flowering or nonflowering and animals as vertebrate or invertebrate.
Develop and use models to classify organisms based on the current hierarchical taxonomic structure (including the kingdoms of protists, plants, fungi, and animals).
Analyze and interpret data related to the diversity of animals to support claims that all animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) share common characteristics.
Next Gen Science Standards:
4-LS1-1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
