Science – sorting food into groups

Wednesday 05 July 2023

In our Science lesson today, 2C have been sorting food into different groups.

The first idea we had was to sort food into liquids and solids. We had some great discussions about why some foods can be seen as a solid or a liquid depending on their state or consistency. For example single cream is a liquid, but whipped cream is a solid. We have drinkable yoghurts, and yoghurts that require a spoon.

We also sorted the food into green and non-green foods.

Other ideas we had about how to sort food was splitting them into healthy and unhealthy foods or fruit/vegetables and ‘other’. We are really looking forward to continuing our investigations. Next week we will be focussing on the types of food we should eat and different food groups.
