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 mixed up mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.
In my WWW lesson page, I define reptile, give examples,
and include links. I hope you enjoy.
