Classification of Living Things Cont.

Performance Objectives

Student should be able to:

  1. Classify organisms into the appropriate kingdoms
  2. Give the characteristics of Kingdom fungi, plantae and animalia


All living organisms are classified based on very basic, shared characteristics. Organisms within each group are then further divided into smaller groups. These smaller groups are based on more detailed similarities within each larger group. This grouping system makes it easier for scientists to study certain groups of organisms. Characteristics such as appearance, reproduction, mobility, and functionality are just a few ways in which living organisms are grouped. The classification of living things includes 7 levels: kingdom, phylum, classes, order, families, genus, and species.
