Sorting Animals Resources

The resources below can be used to teach your children about keys and ways of sorting / classifying animals. They include:

  • Sorting Animals Activity - This includes a completed branching key that you can discuss with your class. How does it work? How do we use it to identify different creatures? How are the animals similar / different? A blank version is also available (with the relevant animal cards) so that your children can complete the key for themselves.
  • Sorting Animals Cards - A set of twenty animal cards can also be downloaded below. Your students could use these for their own sorting activities. Can they pick eight / ten (or more, depending on their age / ability) and create their own branching key to help others to sort and identify them?

We also have lots of photo cards showing different animals that you can use for other sorting activities. Visit the following pages to find them all:
