Teaching classification KS2 - one to two lessons worth of resources
Tried and tested for Year 6 and written by a secondary school biology teacher, these activities work well. Particularly suited for teachers not confident with the content of this part of the science curriculum. Students have some "hands-on" activities and they learn the characteristics of the major groups. There are activities included on using and devising keys. There is enough material here for 2 hours work or more.
