Kingdom Animalia

All life on the planet belongs to one of six kingdoms.  One of those kingdoms is the animal kingdom.

Is a fly an animal? Is a human an animal? What about a fish?  If you answered, "Yes," then you are right!  

 

*Task 1: Before you watch the video on Animals, write down three shared characteristics of a fly, a human, and a fish in your journal. 

 

*Task 2:After you watch the video write down three shared characteristics of animals.  Do your characteristics match?  Yes? No? Why?

 

*Task 3: You are walking down a path in the woods.  You see something moving on the ground.  It has teeth and wings. When you walk closer, it jumps and flaps its wings to fly away. Is it an animal? Why or why not? Draw a picture and use three pieces of evidence to justify your answer.
