Introduction to Classification Using Buttons
Are you looking for a way to introduce scientific classification or Venn diagrams to your students? Then look no further!
This lesson was designed to be used as an introduction to scientific classification using attributes. This can also be used as an introduction to using Venn Diagrams and sorting according to traits in a non-scientific setting.
There are 4 different versions of the sorting circles with the buttons set up with different traits as the classifier. Give small groups 1 copy and have them discuss the traits that were used to sort the buttons and then allow them to discuss if there may have been a different way to group them.
Two of the Venn diagrams include a button or two that does not “fit” in to the circles, thus they are outside the circles. This will give you an opportunity to discuss “exceptions” to rules, and how in science they will use the attributes to choose the group that something is closest to.
After the small groups complete their discussions, have all of the groups share their charts and the decisions/observations they made.
Following the whole group discussion, have the students cut the buttons out and create their own diagram. This diagram can be glued in to their notebooks or handed in with explanations as an assessment.
For enrichment, have the students sort the buttons in to a triple sorting circle.
