Animal Classification.

Manisha's Drawing with links to every page on her slideshow. 
We have rocketed ahead with our learning about how to classify animals. After creating our skits we then had to add all that we learnt, or could share with others, or could research, about the different classes of animals on a slideshow. We had to focus on the attributes or characteristics of those particular animals. For example all birds have honeycomb bones so they are lighter and can fly easier. Our slideshow included one slide to compare invertebrates and vertebrates, then a slide for each of the eight classes we focused on.
Our next job was to create a classification map in google drawing of the Animal Kingdom and in each box add a link to the slide that had the relevant information. This was a much bigger task than we thought it would be, but we learnt so many interesting facts about the different animals.
One student in Hauraki loved this task and created an amazing slideshow of facts that she sourced from lots of different places. She then linked all her slides to her drawing. Superb work Manisha.

We learnt to research information and write it in our own words. We learnt about classifying information and why things are classified. Next term we will look at pollution of different animal habitats and what we need to do and can do to protect them and make a difference.


  1. WOW! that is so cool I loved learning about Animals

  3. Bonjour,

    My name is Jedi and I am from rimu class, in Yaldhurst Model School.
    I love all animals, they are such amazing creatures! My favourite animals are Big cats and Eagles. I have learnt alot from this slide, like how Spiders and Scorpions are from the group Arachnids.

    I love all the detail you have added here. But maybe you could have put a different font, because it was sort of hard to read.
    But overall it was great.

    Keep up the amazing work!

  8. Hey!
    Really cool blog post, I think it's great the amount of research you guys did about the different animals. Maybe next time you could create a video or a Prezi to show your working and the facts? That would be more interesting for readers to watch. What were some of your favorite animals to learn about?
