Working out “What features help us to classify a living thing as an animal?”

Animals and Plants are living things but what makes them different? The Year 3 classes sorted ‘living cards’ into animal and plant groups. Then we found what was common to each group. We decided a living thing was an animal if it needed food for energy and could independently move. We had lots of discussion about whether a Venus Fly Trap was a plant or an animal but finally decided it was a plant because it can’t independently move.
