This six weeks in science, we are talking about the different kinds of animals and how we classify them. Each week we talk about a different animal group. At the beginning of each week, we made a chart for what characteristics the type of animal group has and examples of animals that are in that group.
The first week we talked about mammals. The kids read a book about mammals and colored it. The kids also made a chart with 3 animals that are mammals and 1 that is not. They did AWESOME!

The second week we talked about birds and the third week we talked about reptiles.

Our fourth week we talked about fish. The kids painted fish one day for our mini fish bowl and tore paper to make fish scales on their fish another day.
