Amazing Animals

from Roper Mountain

Program image

We invite you to join our team at Roper Mountain as we work together to develop a
new animal classification display exhibit! Students will observe amazing
animals, make observations about the animals, and use them to classify each
animal based on its characteristics. The students will even get to develop
their own classification groupings within their teams.

Program Details


1) Introduction to the program
2) Research of Animals
3) Observations of physical and behavioral characteristics
4) Review of vertebrate and invertebrate definition
5) Introduction to 5 animals
6) Reflection on characteristics of animals based on vertebrates and invertebrates


Students will understand:
1) Every animal has characteristics
2) By grouping animals using like characteristics, it is easier to learn about them.
3) By using a hierarchical taxonomic structure we are able to learn and make generalizations about organisms.
4) When given characteristics of an animal we are able to group them with other animals with similar characteristics.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

Next Gen Science Standards:
4-LS1-1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

State Standards

South Carolina State Standards:
Obtain and communicate information about the characteristics of plants and animals to develop models which classify plants as flowering or nonflowering and animals as vertebrate or invertebrate.
Develop and use models to classify organisms based on the current hierarchical taxonomic structure (including the kingdoms of protists, plants, fungi, and animals).
Analyze and interpret data related to the diversity of animals to support claims that all animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) share common characteristics.
