FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Free Dichotomous Classification Key to Holiday Giving and Community Service”

by Amy Brown Science

6th – 12th Grade

Combine scientific classification using dichotomous classification keys with holiday fun and community service!

Teach your middle and high school students how to use a dichotomous classification key while instructing them on the importance of holiday giving and community service.

Students will use this “scientific” classification key to identify the scientific name of various candies and toiletries. As the activity progresses, students will place the candies in small stockings and the toiletries in Ziplock bags so that they can be donated to local food banks, homeless shelters or nursing homes.
