Living Things and Their Habitats

In this topic, we will explore a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things. We will learn how animals are split into ‘vertebrates’ and ‘invertebrates’ and begin to consider the differences between living things within these classifications. We will use and create classification keys to group, identify and name living things from the local habitat and beyond. This unit also introduces us to the idea that environments are subject to man-made and natural changes, and that these changes can have a significant impact on living things. Throughout the unit we will work scientifically by gathering, recording and presenting information in different ways.
