Reptiles, Amphibians, and Mammals Oh, My!

Hello!  My name is Jennifer Merriett.  I am a sixth grade teacher at Aiken Middle School in South Carolina.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina in Aiken December of 2000.  I am currently taking graduate courses at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center at USC-Aiken.  I teach both Math and Science classes.  I have 100 wonderful students that I see daily.  They enjoy Science because of labs, hands-on manipultives, pictures, and the interesting topics.  The last topic we discussed was animals.  I found that most of my students could identify a fish and bird.  However, several of them confused mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.  In my WWW lesson page, I will define reptile, give examples, include pictures, and give links.  I hope you enjoy.

Feel free to use this lesson in your class.  It includes the definition of reptiles, pictures, clip art, lists examples, and gives links.
