We love integrating technology across the curriculum and this week our third grade students used their iPads in Mrs. Smith’s Science Class.
They have been learning about the different classifications of animals. There are so many different types of animals in the world biologists have sorted them into groups. This is called classifying. The two main groups of animals are vertebrates and invertebrates. Students focused on those two groups, vertebrates and invertebrates, and their sub groups.
They used the app, Popplet, to create a concept map that organized the animals and the characteristics that make them unique. Our third graders took it one step further to find pictures of the animals that belonged to each group.
