In Science, we are going to be classifying and sorting animals depending on their characteristics and habitats.
To practise creating classification charts and forming scientific questions, we classified sweets.
We asked questions which could only have an answer of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ (it was harder than we thought). Also, the answers to our questions couldn’t be based upon opinion – ‘Is it small?’ or ‘Is it delicious?’.
We considered the shape, structure, colour and size of the sweets when classifying them.
Have a look at the great questions that we came up with on our classification charts.
What do we need to remember about the questions that we ask when we create classification charts for animals?
