       The 8th grade Science class sorted buttons by two or more characteristics (e.g. color, size, use, shape, etc.) on the 5th. Their goal was to come up with an arrangement that would allow them to place a mystery button without knowing what it looked like. This was to give them an idea of what Mendeleev did when he created the Periodic Table of Elements.
