Animal Classification

As you may recall, we are reading The Burgess Animal Book for Children as part of our science studies.  In this week's chapter, Old Mother Nature explains the larger relationships that bring all gnawers (rodents) together.

Froggy and I have never done any animal classification before at all.   It was fun building the chart with her.  It was amazing how much she remembered. 

After filling out our tiny snippet of a chart, we looked online to see the larger scope and the proper names for the various levels.  We also played an amazingly fun game that shows the different classifications of chordates. Froggy loved it so much she begged to play it over and over again even days later.
