This is a GREAT lesson that focuses on how and why we classify just about Everything! This lesson allows students to brainstorm how we classify, why we classify, etc. While this lesson is focused on the periodic table of the elements, you can modify the text to focus on Anything that we classify (classification of living things, types of plants, etc.). This is a hands-on activity that requires no preparation, but your students will have a much better understanding of classification after this. Have fun! Also, no key is needed for this activity as each student will have his or her own opinion.
The designed PDF can be enjoyed they way it is, but a more straight forward editable word doc is included as well.
