Science : Sorting and classifying animals #Werrington Stem19-11-2019 | 17:45:34 | Comments Off on Science : Sorting and classifying animals #Werrington Stem

In our science lesson today we have been finding out about the different ways in which living things may reproduce. We found out that some living things have babies which are born as live young which look like their parent, some hatch out of eggs and look like their parent and some hatch out of eggs but do not look like their parent. We sorted the living things into groups.

Our challenge activity was to create a glossary of terms we have been using to discuss living things and their babies. We had to correctly match the key words and their meaning.
