When students are engaged, challenged, and given the opportunity to contribute to the outcome of the lesson, their interest level and detail retention increases tremendously.

This lesson will be an introduction to vertebrates, learning about characteristics of different vertebrates and how to further extend that knowledge and classify these vertebrates.
