Students will observe plants and animals in the Robin Hill habitat and will identify key features and physical characteristics.
Students will then group these organisms into the most appropriate group identified on their worksheet.
This resource links to the National Curriculum for Science, (recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways; classification). This on-site science activity enables students to work scientifically in observing and grouping living things (animals and plants) at Robin Hill Country Park.
This resource engages students with specific elements of their visit, linking their learning to the curriculum; they will gain knowledge from their general engagement with the natural environment at Robin Hill and practise their scientific skills, identifying types of animal and plant and grouping them as appropriate based on certain characteristics.
This is an on-site activity. It would be useful if students have had previous discussions about classification. It would also be helpful preparation for students to know how different characteristics of plants and animals can be used to help classify them, before their visit to Robin Hill Country Park.
Students will identify living things within their habitat at the Robin Hill Country Park, and will use specific characteristics to sort those they see or encounter into their appropriate group.
This resource is designed to enhance the visit experience and to engage students with the Robin Hill environment and the rich and diverse habitat there.
Key Skills Practised
