There are millions of different kinds of living things on planet Earth from mammals and trees through to bacteria and other micro-organisms. Classification helps us make sense of what they are and how they relate to each other.
New from YPTE, this suite of five lessons covers the topic of Classification for the Year 6 Science Curriculum. The lessons include a look at the history of classification, how micro-organisms, plants and animals can be classified into groups, while the final lesson enables students to use and devise classification keys for living things.
To be used with the accompanying presentation, which as ever is full of great images to bring the topic to life, the lesson plans also include lots of suggestions for activities.
