Youngsters create a list of grocery store items and then work together to categorize them as if they were setting up the shelves of the market. Then they are given a box of miscellaneous objects to practice categorizing. With these two experiences under their belts, you can then introduce them to the biological classification system and the use of a dichotomous key for identifying unknown organisms. The instructional activity is specific to Kentucky wildlife, but can easily be adapted no matter where you live. 
In this classification worksheet, students will look at how biological classification began and how scientific names are used in biology. Students will use a table showing the classification of four organisms to answer 10 short answer questions. This worksheet also contains 6 matching questions and 9 true or false questions.
Tenth graders are introduced to the the use of similarities and differences in the classification process. Students will then learn how biological classification represents how organisms are related, with species being the most fundamental unit of the classification system.
Seventh graders explain the importance of taxonomy. In this biology instructional activity, 7th graders classify organisms accordingly. They develop a mnemonic to help them remember taxonomy levels.
Students compare the different classifications and explore how organisms are grouped.  In this classification lesson students study images of organisms and answer questions. 
Students explore diverse forms of life by using modern biological classification systems to group animals that are related. Students then study basic scientific groupings like genus, species, mammals, fish, birds, amphibians, and reptiles, and pair different vertebrate animals, identifying their common traits.
"Does King Phillip Cry Over Flimsy Grass Stems?" You might not answer that question with this exhaustive instructional activity, but your biology class will get the full scoop on the hierarchy of biological classification with this resource. It includes seven pages of tables, charts, and phylogenic trees for comparing characteristics at different levels. After it is completed, it will serve as an all-encompassing study guide for a unit exam. 
In this classification of life worksheet, students use an on line source to answer questions about how species are classified, named and grouped. They give the classification of a bear, an orchid and a sea cucumber.
A three-page quiz assessing budding biologists' understanding of classification. Middle-level learners may need a little additional time on this, but should be able to handle the concepts with ease.
Tenth graders explain how organisms are classified according to similarities. In this biology instructional activity, 10th graders research on five different organisms of their choice. They prepare a report and presentation about them which they share with the class.
Students can learn about the evolution of science by discussing the classification of living things.
Students learn about binomial nomenclature, the scientific system of classification. In this scientific classification lesson plan, students work cooperatively to complete a binomial scavenger hunt using the internet and a Visual Thesaurus. Student groups compete against other teams to correctly identify and classify the greatest number of organisms according to their binomial and common names.
Students are introduced to the concept of classification as it relates to objects, information, and characteristics.  In this classification lesson, students research a variety of animals. Students study the Linnaeus's system of classifying plants and animals on seven levels. Students use the scientific classification system to identify a plant or animal and make significant connections regarding the Latin root based language of each term.
Third graders work in small groups to investigate how to sort a variety of items into groups and subgroups. They work on a class chart based on the activity which show how the items are classified based on commonalities. Upon completion of the classification exercise, they complete a KWL chart about Animal Classification. Finally, they discuss the reasons why scientists classify animals and how they determine the schema for doing so.
In this kingdom classifying worksheet, students apply knowledge about the bacteria and archaea kingdom to correctly answer short answer questions. Students list the three main shapes of bacteria cells and the living arrangements. Students several characteristics of bacteria cells.
Students compare and contrast classification systems used throughout the world. They also examine the importance of preserving biological diversity.
Students visit numerous places to help in their understanding of Ecology. In this biology lesson plan, students will learn about characteristics and how to identify numerous plants and animals. This lesson allows for many field trip opportunities.
Three lessons and five assessments are contained in this material. Various paper shapes are sorted as a simulation of biological classification. Learners gather a list of living things that they are familiar with and design a classification system for them. The third lesson in the series focuses on the outdated kingdom Monera. As long as you teach the more current name for the bacteria, the culturing and examination in this activity is applicable to the taxonomy theme. 
Students develop a classification scheme based on the structural features of organisms.  For this organism lesson students divide into teams and complete a fun activity. 
Pupils classify imaginary newly discovered organisms. In this classification lesson, students are given cards showing imaginary organisms that have been recently discovered. They must classify the organisms based on their characteristics.
