About this schools Wikipedia selection

SOS Children have produced a selection of wikipedia articles for schools since 2005. Click here to find out about child sponsorship.

We have divided Biology (the study of life) into nine sections because there are a lot of articles of interest to our audience. Birds, Dinosaurs, Mammals, Organisms, plants and "insects reptiles and fish" are mainly composed of articles about living things (or extinct things) in these categories. General Biology, Health and Medicine, and evolution and reproduction are articles about topics which run across a lot of different forms of life.
