The Wilderness Science Center Study
By Natalie White

1st Grade Lesson

For the last week I’ve been observing/working with a first grade lesson that teaches them about the different types of invertebrates and vertebrates. At first, they learn about the spinal cord (backbone) and the roles it plays through out our body. Next, they figure out what time of animals are warm and cold blooded.
Then, we explain the directions to the activity they’re going to do.

Each group walks over to a specific table, which as clues as to what kind of animal it is (amphibians, birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles). After they’ve gathered clues from their adult, they circle what they think and then rotate to the next table.
