Who Wants to Be a Zoologist?
Produced by ARKive, a database of stunning natural history images, this activity is designed to teach students aged 11-14 about the identifiable features of different types of animals and how they are classified. The activity is also suitable for students aged 14-16 and beyond.
Using a quiz format, students use their knowledge of different taxonomic groups combined with powers of deduction to identify different types of animals from photos. This activity also encourages discussion based on the combination of observation and deduction in order to reach an informed decision.
