Protists, like algae and mold, are sometimes overlooked for classroom study, but they are astonishing in their diversity and importance.
In this viruses, bacteria, protists, and fungi worksheet, students will review the basic characteristics of each of these groups. Students will complete 7 fill in the blank questions about viruses, 6 true or false questions about bacteria, 11 matching questions about protists, and 7 short answer questions about fungi.
Students identify the distinguishing features of fungi, observe samples of fungi and work in groups to research and present a report on a particular type of fungus. They examine the possible role of fungi in the Salem Witch Trials.
Students research the five kingdoms and in groups create a graphic organizer, giving examples of each of the five kingdoms. They create PowerPoint presentations that describe and give examples from each of the five kingdoms.
Students can learn about the evolution of science by discussing the classification of living things.
In this biology worksheet, students complete 28 short answer questions on fungi. They color and label the different parts of a hyphae.
Students explain the benefits and harm caused by bacteria in the body. In this biology instructional activity, students observe bacterial growth in the lab. They explain why anti-bacterial soap may not be beneficial for the human body.
In this kingdoms activity, students compare the six different kingdoms. Students complete 2 short answer questions based on this information.
Here is an outstanding presentation on protista. It lists general characteristics, and then moves on to describing three different categories of protists. For each, viewers learn physical features, behaviors, and means of reproduction. Colorful, high-quality photos and diagrams illustrate each slide. This is a gem of a slide show to add to your biology resource repertoire.
Students review the various categories in taxonomy. In groups, they identify the characteristics of each kingdom and compare and contrast them. They define the terms binomial nomenclature and morphology. To end the lesson, they create a phylogeny for a set of organisms.
Students investigate the best conditions for fungi to grow on seeds. In this fungi lesson plan, students hypothesize about mold growth and the best conditions for it to grow on seeds by storing seeds in cold, dry conditions and warm, moist conditions. They determine if their hypothesis was correct and answer 4 questions about their investigation.
Students explore various types and characteristics of fungi. In this fungi instructional activity,students view drawings of how mushrooms grow, examine samples of fungi and complete a handout.
Students grow bacteria cultures on agar in petri dishes and do a plate count. They participate in a yogurt making lab to see how bacteria produce lactic acid. They prepare a recipe and identify fungi, fermentation and the role of microorganisms.
Young scholars identify characteristics of kingdoms Protista and Fungi. They complete a worksheet of protists and fungi. Students review the familiar characteristics of plants, animals, bacteria and viruses. They need to familiarize themselves of fungi and protists.
Students investigate the concept of kingdoms in the science of Biology while identifying the factors that put them into different categories. They conduct research into each kingdom and write a synopsis of each separately. Students are introduced to the concept of morphology also.

Sixth graders classify fungus into two different groups. In this fungus lesson, 6th graders collect as many pieces of fungus as possible. Students then classify these pieces of fungus as saprophytic or parasitic. 
In this fungi worksheets, learners will review the general characteristics of fungi including their adaptations and reproductive strategies. This instructional activity has 3 short answer, 12 fill in the blank, and 5 true or false questions.
Third graders analyze biology by identifying different animal characteristics. In this animal classification instructional activity, 3rd graders identify the different animal families and discuss their similarities as well as their differences. Students answer study questions regarding the animal kingdom and analyze images of different animals before completing a worksheet.
