We want to make an Animal Kingdom Tree of Life (we did this two years ago), but this time including all the phylum and in a tree-like structure. I’m still figuring out how to do this best, if anyone has any ideas, please let me know!

For now, I’ve found some fascinating websites, such as the Tree of Life web project.

I can’t believe all the information they have regarding Cnidarians (our study for the week), much of it very kid-friendly. For example, head to their Cnidarian page and click on “Treehouses”. It shows kid-friendly stories, games, quizzes and more. Here’s one on “The Adventures of Squishy the Jellyfish”.

Want more? Drill down into “Collections” and watch 17 Cnidaria videos or view hundreds of images!

New pages are added to this amazing resource every week. I’m still exploring the site and finding amazing new cool features. For example, check out their related web page, Tree of Life Interactive.

I’ll be coming back and writing a more detailed Blog Page review soon!
