Animals

The Animals module begins with an area of fascination for students, animals of all sorts. An animated host begins the unit by introducing students to wild animals in their habitats. In online and offline activities, students broaden their understanding of animals by learning to identify and classify animals into six categories: mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates.  A new addition to our Animal module includes human body parts like the brain, stomach and muscles.  Students not only learn more about the parts, but also their functions.

Students put their earlier learning about the needs and characteristics of living things to good use in online games, animated activities, and hands-on lessons about animals. In the Animals module, students begin with familiar knowledge and build a strong new knowledge and vocabulary base for further learning about animals.
