In this holiday themed activity, your students will learn to combine scientific classification using dichotomous classification keys with community service!

Students will use this “scientific” classification key to identify the scientific name of various candies and toiletries. As the activity progresses, students will place the candies in small stockings and the toiletries in Ziplock bags so that they can be donated to local food banks, homeless shelters or nursing homes. My students LOVE this activity.
