Classifying the natural world

In science this week, we’ve studied the idea of scientific classification. Here’s Patrick’s write up of our class attempt at classifying the natural world.


Faith suggested a dotted line between living and non-living because the remains of animals and plants are preserved in fossils. Perhaps wooden objects cross over in the same way. And to complicate things further, we talked about how boundaries between living and non-living may blur as artificial life develops.

We also spent a pleasant half-hour in the nature garden, sketching different organisms and plants and then classifying them into the five animal kingdoms etc. Here are Olivia’s sketches and some photos.
