In this video, Carl Linnaeus talks about his scientific method of classifying plants, animals and stones. He explains his new classification system, which is known as taxonomy, and how it helps us determine what an organism is. The naming is decided by their genus and species. We learn about how he came up with the idea on a research visit to Lapland. His scientific process involved observing, recording the information and making conclusions. He divided animals into six classes: mammals, birds, amphibians, fish, insects and worms. He gave each organism a two-part Latin scientific name and used hierarchy, which showed how important each animal was. The system could be used across the whole world. We learn key scientific terminology and skills throughout the video. Teacher notes: As a starter to introduce a practical science activity, you could write a simple quiz to encourage students to capture the keywords shown in the video. Students could write their own definitions from these words using the internet or science dictionaries to improve their scientific vocabularies. Students could use pictures, books and videos to identify animals in different locations, like the desert, jungle etc.
