UKS2 Science – Classifying Choccies

What is the difference between a jellyfish and a slug? How related are a bee and a bat? These are the kinds of questions we will be getting our heads around in our new Science Topic- Classification.

To get the grips with classification, we had a go at grouping something we know really well- chocolate! After learning how classification trees work, we were tasked with creating our own to classify 9 different chocolates. We had to think of ways that some where similar, but different to others. It was particularly difficult for some that were almost identical (like M&Ms and smarties!)

Of course, for all our hard work, we were allowed to eat the chocolate at the end 😀
