Living things and their habitats: classification

This resource provides a selection of lesson plans, worksheets and teachers notes relating to living things and their habitats at Year Six. They include activities which look at the history of classification of living things, studying the binomial system introduced by Linnaeus and the 7 levels of classification used today.

Ideas are also provided for activities in which children collect plants in local environment and identify them using classification keys. They then create their own classification keys to identify birds, insects and tree leaves.

Provided by Hamilton Trust, these sessions have been written in line with the new national curriculum (published in 2013).

The Hamilton website also hosts a wealth of other free resources.
