Six Kingdoms Classification Project
Your mission is to fill out the "Six Kingdoms of Life" chart (handout). For each of the six kingdoms fill in "yes" or "no" in each column based on the characteristic listed at the top of the column.
Remember kingdoms have many different species in them so some kingdoms might have organisms that have different forms of a characteristic listed. For example in Kingdom Animalia there are both Herbivores and Carnivores, so you'd put a "yes" in both of those columns for Animalia.
While you may work together at the computers be careful to do your own work on your chart. Don't just put what someone else has because they have it... you must confirm the accuracy of your research from a reputable source (see below) rather than just from your friend in class.
In order to fill out your chart you can use information sources such as your class notes, the AGS Biology Text Chapter 15 Pp. 457-500 and the websites listed below.
The Six Kingdoms
