Living Things - Grouping and Classifying

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with variation between animals and grouping and classifying living things.

Scientists put things into groups or classify them. You know that some things are living and some are not. Living things are plants or animals. Are all living things the same? What makes them different? Can you put animals into groups? How will you decide how to classify them?
