Year 8 boys visit Chester Zoo as part of variation and classification topic

Year 8 boys visited Chester Zoo on Tuesday as part of their variation and classification topic on their scheme of work.

The 57 boys were collecting information and photographs which will be used to produce a classification key and a project about a specific species. 

The boys also had a session delivered by the education team at the zoo aimed at classification in which the boys were lead through a process of classifying an animal from its skull.

This gave the boys an opportunity to analyse evidence in front of them to come to a conclusion on which species they were looking at and associate it to its scientific name.
