Science: What is a classification?

Sunday 18 September 2022

We’ve been busy biologists in our science lesson this week! 😁

We used Venn diagrams to help sort and classify animals using different criterion. Murielle, Aubree and Lilly thought of classifying animals according to their number of legs or if the animal had fur. Jacob, Evie and Liam classified animals by scales or if the animal had a tail.

Check out this short animation. Before we classified animals, we used biscuits to support our understanding of classification. See if your child can chat about the time we classified biscuits..! Here’s a little hint for them…

Together with your child, have a go at classifying these biscuits according to the criteria!
