We began the lesson by looking at our WALT: children creating their own Field Guide to the habitat around their school. It was explained that the children would have the chance at the end of the lesson to present their work to another pair.
The children then worked in pairs to identify living things in the habitat around the school. They were reminded not to touch or eat any of the organisms they found. They listed all of the plants and animals they found, using Plants and Animals ID Sheets to help them identify some of the species they may found.
Next, the children created their own Field Guide to the habitat around their school. They classified the organisms they found and added them to the correct area of the Field Guide.
To finish, the children presented their Field Guides to their audience, explaining why they classified the organisms into each group.
