This activity helps to embed an understanding of classification. Children will have the opportunity to complete activities where they must identify animals and determine whether they are vertebrates or invertebrates. They will then be tasked on classifying and grouping the species they found, on your own personalised rock pooling reports.


By considering ecosystems and habitats, this activity discusses adaptations before tasking your students to consider some adaptations of the animals you found, on your rock pool reports. 

Scientific Drawing

A lovely, simple introduction to scientific diagrams – with a clear success criteria and ID cards to support if needed. A key ‘working scientifically’ objective for every year group!
