This resource enables students to use their visit to the Isle of Wight to begin to see that animals can be classified in a variety of ways.
This resource is for students in key stage 2.
It links to the ‘Living things and their Habitats’ part of the Science National Curriculum.
Students will be identifying species that live in or around the Solent.
This is a on-site and post-visit resource, designed around the students’ ferry journey to the island.
Students will identify any species they see, and then complete follow- up research work with some extension tasks for the higher ability students.
It would be useful if students had previous discussions about different marine species.
It would also be useful if students know how to characterise differed features to aid identification etc.
Key Skills Practised
Understanding that organisms can be grouped in a variety of ways
Recognising different characteristics that aid in identification
Classifying different organisms into groups
Students recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. They will name a variety of species that can be found in the local and wider environment. Students will recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.
