Queensland Museum Kurilpa, Brisbane

Enhance opportunities for students to explore Classification in your classroom with Queensland Museum research and collections.

How do researchers at Queensland Museum classify and describe species? This PD provides strategies and resources for your students to explore our present system of scientific classification, investigate how and why living things are named and described, accurately differentiate between species, and learn how scientists discover new species.

You will participate in hands-on activities and view exhibition content exploring concepts such as binomial names, writing scientific descriptions, dichotomous keys, family plates, and DNA sequencing.

Workshops are designed by educators, for educators, and connected to real-life examples of Queensland Museum research and collections.

A range of take-home learning resources with clear curriculum links are provided so that you can easily implement these activities in your classroom.

Most suitable for Years 5–10 teachers of Biological Sciences.
