Science - Classifying Living Things


We have taken our learning outdoors to observe living things in our local envrionment. We grouped these things by common characteristics: some chose size, others colour, others where they were found (for example in the air or on the ground).

We decided that scientists needed one set of rules to follow and so have researched Carl Linnaeus and his classification system and even the early works of Aristotle. Do you know your Kingdom from your Phylum, Order or Species?
