Students learn that scientists classify organisms according to a guideline established by Carl Linnaeus, a Swedish biologist from the 1700’s. This classification system is used to organize species into workable groups of living things that have many similarities. In our demonstration, we will teach the students where raptors situate themselves in that classification system, what are their characteristics and how they compare to other vertebrate classes of animals.
Covered subjects: Birds, Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, Classification, Characteristics. Hierarchy, Anatomy, Natural Selection.
