Animal Characteristics Game provides five animal category bins: mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish. Above the bins are various characteristics arranged in random order. Students drag and drop the appropriate characteristics into the corresponding bin. Once all of the characteristics are dropped in the correct bin, watch for a fun surprise! If students struggle with the characteristics or want to learn more, they can click on the Animal Classification icon to learn information for each species. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

Share this site on your projector or interactive whiteboard to introduce a new unit on habitats or for review. Students could be split into two teams and keep a tally of which team gets the most characteristics correct. Have cooperative learning groups further investigate the animals at this site and create a multimedia project about their animal (or even habitat). How about comparing amphibians and reptiles using a Venn Diagram. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).
