Animal Classification


Using observation skills and inquiry on a group exploration, students will cultivate their curiosity while hiking the trails of Retzer. Students will discuss organisms’ different life cycles as well as what they have in common. We will discuss how to classify an animal by relating it to its habitat (ecosystem) and its unique physical and behavioral traits.
