All plants and animals reproduce and the scientific word for this is offspring.


Animals are classified into different groups depending on their characteristics.


The five main groups are mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians.


Mammals give birth to live offspring.

Birds, reptiles and amphibians lay eggs.

Fish either lay eggs or give birth to live young.


Some offspring go through changes from birth to adult - these are called life-cycles.
