Classify It

Introduction

You probably know that organisms that be sorted—or classified—into different groups based on their physical characteristics. But, did you know that an organism can be classified in more than one way? Learn more about classification with these resources.


Exploration

Before you do the Classify It! app, view the Kingdoms of Life video, from Scholastic. This video provides a brief overview of the five different kingdoms: animal, plant, protist, fungi, and bacteria.

As you watch this video, answer these questions on the Classify It student sheet:

  • Why do scientists care about what kingdom an organism would belong to?
  • What are the five kingdoms discussed in this video?
  • What is an animal?
  • What is a plant?
  • What are fungi?
  • What are protists?
  • What are bacteria?
  • Do you think that organisms always fit neatly into these kingdoms? Why or why not?
