Characteristics of animals

Hi everyone, my question is about characteristics of animals. How can an instructor teach students to investigate the external characteristics of an animal?  For example, where it lives, how it moves and what it eats.

Hi Makaela

Why not start with having your students finding the similariies and grouping?  That would be an excellent lead in for the students to ask and then learn how to investigate their own questions  (why do snakes have scales and worms dont'?)

Have fun
