Mystery Science: How Many Different Kinds of Animals Are There?

In this Mystery, students examine how scientists organize animals into groups based on their characteristics.

In the activity, Animals Sorting Game, students study animal traits and use these traits to sort animal cards into mammals, birds, reptiles, and invertebrates. Students are then challenged to make decisions about animals that don’t fall neatly into any of those categories.
