Science this week
Wednesday 11th October | 1 comment
This week in science we explored how classification and taxonomy applies to plant species. First, we spent some time in the wild flower garden looking at how the plants differed. We talked about which features made them different and how scientists might classify them. Then we returned to the classroom to complete our Garden Centre Challenge. Working in small groups, we classified a wide variety of plants with the aim of creating a clear, logical layout for a garden centre. The plants had to be with similar species and be given a name that applied to all the plants in the group.
