Branching Databases
In this unit pupils learn to use and create branching databases to sort and classify information. Pupils will use 'yes/no' questions to separate a set of objects into two sub-sets. They are shown how to search and create/modify  branching databases. They will apply what they have learned in this unit when classifying things such as plants and animals in science.
