Who Am I Lesson

Type: Free Lesson

We so often learn about plants and animals from other places while not really seeing what is right in front of us. In this activity, students learn to recognize and classify native plants and animals.


Using only yes/no questions, students determine the identity of the plant or animal picture they are wearing on their back. Students then classify the organisms identified.


Students will:

  • Classify familiar plants and animals according to similarities and differences in appearance
  • Compare the structures and behaviours of local animals and plants
  • Analyze simple food chains and the roles of organisms as part of interconnected food webs, populations, communities and ecosystems
  • Distinguish between life forms
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the characteristics of living things
