I’ve enjoyed publishing posts with introductory biology activities for preschoolers and early elementary-age children.
I published a roundup of living and non-living activities.
I have a sorting activity with plants and animals.
In my roundup post of land, air, and water sorting, you’ll find some activities for sorting land, air, and water animals.
Today, I’ll share some resources for helping children understand the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates and classes of vertebrates.
