Have a look at the Curious Creature presentation (where it says ‘discuss with a partner’, just have a think on your own or talk to an adult about it).
Then have a go at matching the animal picture with its classification description.
Once you have done that-it’s time to get creative.  Create your own creature-start by thinking about its classification and think what features it will need to have. Complete the Curious Creature sheet.  the more creative you can be, the better.  Have fun!
