Y6 Classification Key

Pupils use a classification key to help them place a number of animals into their correct groups (a cut and paste activity).

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals
  • NaG - pupils should classify animals into vertebrates (reptiles, fish, amphibians, birds and mammals) and commonly found invertebrates (e.g. insects, spiders, snails, worms)
