First, students will be given the classification handout for both reptiles and amphibians. It will show the classes, orders and families of each. Students will need to complete the handout by listing a species for each ‘family’.
Next, students will choose one species of reptile and one amphibian to complete classification cards listing the class, order, family and species plus information such as habitat, diet, habits, characteristics and a couple other details. Students will also be asked to draw an illustration of each species (including correct coloration).
I’ve also included classification card templates. These can be used in centers, for products or other activities!
