Today in science, we designed and created a teepee for mini beasts. Before designing and constructing the teepee, we discussed what would make a good habitat for mini beasts and the type of materials we should use to build it. We had a lot of fun building our teepees!
In Science today, we learned about classification - what it is and why we use it. We then had a go at classifying sweets by using closed questions ('yes' and 'no' questions). Take a look at the images below to see how we classified the sweets.
Did you know that Swedish scientist, Carl Linnaeus (in the 1700s) created a system of putting species into certain groups and giving them scientific names? This is what we call classification.
