This Science Video Worksheet is one page and has an answer key in a very simple format that is designed for quick correction.

This video is designed to help introduce Elementary School students and beyond to 7 groups of animals and some of their subgroups. It gives definitions and real images of almost all (we use cartoons instead of real images for several that some children have strong fear of: rats, snakes, spiders):

1. Insects

2. Spiders

3. Fish (distinguishes bony vs. cartilaginous)

4. Amphibians

5. Reptiles (also gives example of major subgroups, which are: alligators / crocodiles; lizards; turtles and tortoises; snakes)

6. Birds

7. Mammals (also gives examples of common subgroups: bovine, canine, cetaceans, equine, feline, porcine).

We made this video and it is free to access on our YouTube channel, which is designated for children's content: Intro To Animals for Elementary School and beyond. NGSS 4-LS1-1 - YouTube

Here's a short description of how to use this with the Flipped Classroom model if you wish: Intro to Science Video Worksheets. - YouTube

This may be useful for in-class or at home completion (flipped classroom). It may be convenient for lesson planning for a substitute teacher, especially if needed on short notice.

Compared with a lecture or textbook, our videos are designed to be a slower pace, so they are less intense. Students may find them most helpful to view the night before a topic is introduced in class so that they are familiar with the vocabulary and key concepts. Many of our videos have footage of rare views or events, so that they are somewhat edutainment in style to make them enjoyable to watch at home.

Best wishes,
