Which Family? (Animal Classification and Identification): (Upper key stage 2 and 3)

Animals can be grouped into different families, like the fish or mammal family. But in each family there is a huge variety of animals that come in all shapes and sizes. Discuss the groups that are present at the aquarium, the differences between animals and why they are in the groupings they are in. Using a number of living specimens the group will be able to identify which family an animal belongs to and label an animal’s basic anatomy.
