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 The third instructional activity in the series focuses on the outdated kingdom Monera.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 investigate the relationships between protozoa, algae and monera in freshwater, shoreline soil, and reindeer rumen. They publish reports of their findings.
Students, after reading about the parts of a plant, identify each part and describe its function.
In this Prokaryotes and Protists worksheet, students are given details about the Kingdom Monera and Kingdom Protista. Included are examples of the species in each kingdom, the characteristics of each kingdom and how the species are classified in each kingdom.
Students explore the 5 kingdoms of living things. For this 5 kingdoms of living things lesson, students research the Animalia, Plantae, Monera, Protista, and Fungi Kingdoms. Students use their research findings to create PowerPoint presentations to share in class.
For this biology worksheet, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms related to the classification of living things. There are 32 biology terms located in the word search.
Students study how microorganisms can be helpful and harmful. They listen to read alouds about germs and yeast and make bread to visualize how microorganisms can be helpful. They write science journal entries.
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.
Learners identify the difference between eukaryote and prokaryotes and examine the structure of bacteria.  In this bacteria lesson students examine the different ways that bacteria are classified through an activity. 
Seventh graders look up pictures of viruses or pictures of models of viruses. Using pipe cleaners, beads, Styrofoam or other available materials make models of these shapes. They then observe a demonstration to show the effect of Tobacco Mosaic Virus.
Students research the Arctic Hare and chart relevant information under month headings. They compare the information about the Arctic hare to other Arctic mammals.
Students analyze the classification of living organisms and name the five different kingdoms in classifying. They list the five kingdoms as Monera, Protista, Fungi, Plant and Animal. Students state why classification is important.
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.
In this microorganism worksheet students complete a series of multiple choice questions on fungi, bacteria and other organisms. 
This jeopardy PowerPoint covers 5 questions for each of the 5 kingdoms. 
Students review the system of classification and the five kingdoms by completing written assessments. To aid in reviewing, they play a vertebrate card game or a version of Jeopardy. Students begin a take-home test in class.
Mini microbiologists play a card game in which they group microorganisms by groups: virus, fungus, protist, or bacteria. Then they identify the roles different microbes play in the natural world and explore how humans effectively use certain microorganisms in food production and industry. This lesson is part of a unit on microbes, and is a fun addition to any middle school microbiology curriculum.
Second graders compare and contrast animate and inanimate objects. For this environmental science lesson, 2nd graders create simple food webs. They observe their environment and create a collage about it.
Present information about the classification of animals. After participating in the teacher-led discussion about scientific names, small groups devise their own way of classifying everyday objects present in the classroom, developing two-part names for several objects in the room. While the lesson cites standards for narrative writing, the closest the activity comes to these standards is in an extension activity. The focus is on learning about scientific names.
Students trace the presence of water-borne diseases to environmental conditions caused by humans. They describe how these diseases affect people in the developed world. They discuss possible solutions as well.
