OVERVIEW: There are millions of living things in the world! Scientists put living things into groups to make it easier to study and learn more about them.

During ZooLab’s ‘Classification’ workshop, we will explore different animals and learn how they are classed.

This hands-on, animal-handling workshop experience brings pupils face to face with classification. It is all part of an experiential and interactive learning experience in which introduces ZooLab animals that include vertebrates and invertebrates. Pupils explore different classes of animal so they can uncover their differences and similarities themselves.
