8 Classification through the Curriculum 11U Biology Classification of each kingdom according to anatomical physiological characteristics 11C Biology Characteristics of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses) 12U/C Prep. Characteristics, properties, and virulence of various bacteria and pathogens 12 Workplace Characteristics and growth of different types of non-pathogenic bacteria Differences between bacteria and viruses

9 BackgroundInformation Background Information 2 Kingdoms (Plant & Animal) 3 Kingdoms (Plant, Animal, Single Celled) 4 Kingdoms (Plant, Animal, Protista, Monera) 5 Kingdoms (Plant, Animal, Protista, Monera, Fungi) 6 Kingdoms? (Plant, Animal, Protista, Fungi, Bacteria, Archaea)

10 Lesson 1 Identification of Characteristics in Non-Living Things Difficulties/Misconceptions Difficulty determining number of characteristics Classify using one characteristic, then recombine Dichotomous keys Multiple Intelligences Bodily-Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Visual Modifications Give a dichotomous key and/or the number of characteristics

11 Lesson 2 Classification of Living Things in the Animal Kingdom Difficulties/Misconceptions More invertebrates (1 265 500 species) than vertebrates (52 500 species) Classification by size or habitat Multiple Intellgences Bodily-Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Visual Modifications Add names to pictures for ESL & linguistic learners Decrease the number of and/or type of animals for IEP Include animals from countries of your students cultural backgrounds

12 Lesson 4 Classifying Arthropods using a Dichotomous Key Difficulties/Misconceptions Students believe that there is only one type of butterfly

13 Lessons 5 & 6 Characteristics and Identification of Tree Leaves Difficulties/Misconceptions Belief of only one type of maple, oak, etc. Classification by size of leaf Multiple Intellgences Bodily-Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Visual, Naturalistic Modifications Students in addition can read about the differences and similarities Decrease the number of and/or type of leaves for IEP Use a website to identify leaf samples

14 Assessment and Evaluation Comparison of Arthropods or Trees Choice of mind maps or write up Beyond Monet Evaluation of learning skills for report card Group skills
