Existing, Endangered, Extinct
This unit delves into the science of living things with a HUGE focus on how we use classification! The website below has some useful links if you are wanting to gain some extra knowledge on this.
Another area we look at is life cycles! Below is an amazing video clip that shows off some lifestyles of different living things!
While we are learning all about this, there is some tricky vocabulary that may pop up! Ask us the meaning of these words throughout this topic to see what we have learned! Key vocabulary: amphibian, arthropod, bird, fish, insect, invertebrate, life cycle, mammal, metamorphosis, reptile, vertebrate.

This website looks at extinct animals. Research some of the animals and find out how they ended up extinct!
If you have an interest in Existing, Endangered or Extinct animals, why not conduct some of your own research at home! You could even try to create your own tree of life or even your own animal (see below) We can't wait to see what you find out!
