        Animal Classification Game

        This interactive activity adapted from Sheppard Software challenges you to identify various animals as they flash across the screen. Correct recognition depends on your understanding of how animals are classified according to certain physical characteristics and behaviors. For example, even though a butterfly and a hummingbird both fly, their respective body plans and other inherited traits mean that one is classified as an insect and the other as a bird. Similarities and differences among living things are the result of evolution.

        This media asset was adapted from Sheppard Software: Kids Corner.
