1 Diversity of Life What are the levels of classification? Six Kingdoms of Life 8
2 Maryland Science Content Standard Students will be able to provide examples and explain that organisms sorted into groups share similarities in external structures as well as similarities in internal anatomical structures and processes which can be used to infer the degree of relatedness among organisms
3 Objectives Students will be able to: –Explain that organisms are classified according to similarities and differences in internal and external anatomical structures and processes. –Title: Six Kingdoms –Date:10/14/2015
4 Warm Up –Examine the picture to the right. Organize the objects in the picture by grouping them into three different categories. After you are done write down the answers to the following questions: 1.In what three categories did you choose to group your pictures? 2.Why do we categorize things?
5 Today Students Will… Explain why we need to classify organisms Identify the six kingdoms of life by researching each one and distinguishing it from the others Identify the levels of classification scientists use to classify organisms Evaluate their understanding of the different classification levels by answering the conclusion question
6 Why do we need to classify organisms? What different kinds of living things can you think of? What kinds of differences are there between them? Why would scientists need to put organisms into groups?
7 Six Kingdoms of Life Click Here!!!! Use the website to find out more information about how scientists group all living organisms on the Earth. Read about each kingdom and then write down three facts about each kingdom on your Six Kingdoms of Life worksheet that make them unique from the other kingdoms.Six Kingdoms of Life worksheet
8 Levels of Classification Answer the questions on your worksheet using your From Bacteria to Plants text pgs 20-21.
9 Extension: Scientific Name An organism’s scientific name consists of the genus and species name. The first part of the organism’s name is its genus. The second part of the name is the species name.
10 Conclusion: What are the groups life is classified into?
