A couple of months ago, I did an animal unit with my youngest. We went over the characteristics of living and non-living things. Then we talked about vertebrates and invertebrates and finally we went over the five vertebrate groups in quite some detail. I shared the free Montessori cards I made for that part of our unit: the Montessori Vertebrate-Invertebrate cards and the sheets I made on Animals and their Characteristics.
I had intended to then go over Animals and their Groups, but with all my ear surgery (4 since October and one more coming up in a few weeks), we never got to that part of our unit. I thought I would share the cards I made with you even though we haven’t used them in our homeschool yet. I don’t want to forget about them!
I also made a matching sheet to go along with this. You can also download these if you’re interested:
