Protists, like algae and mold, are sometimes overlooked for classroom study, but they are astonishing in their diversity and importance.
In this kingdom protista worksheet, students conduct an experiment by placing a handful of grass in to a jar and filling the jar with pond water. Then they place the jar in a dark place for 3 days and observe the contents. Students also draw the protists they observe in the given space.
In this crossword puzzle worksheet, 7th graders read the definitions that relate to the protista kingdom and then complete the crossword puzzle.
What are the structures in cells and what are their functions? Budding biologists discover the answers to these questions through an in-depth examination of cells and organelles. Using the 5E learning cycle, learners explore the types of organelles using an electron microscope, research, draw, and describe the function of each one, explain how different cell types make up different kingdoms, then design and execute an experiment to determine the effect of pH on algae. 
In this amoeba worksheet, students read about the structures of the amoeba and their functions. They answer twelve questions about the amoeba and color given structures on a diagram of an amoeba.
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.
An in-depth introduction to biological classification is presented at the opening of this presentation, dividing life into six kingdoms. Although it does not address the currently accepted level of domain, it is an outstanding exploration of the criteria for each kingdom and the unique characteristics of archaebacteria, eubacteria, protista, and fungi. Diagrams, graphics, and high-quality color photos enhance learning. Watch out for the final fungi photo; It is disgusting!
Students, after reading about the parts of a plant, identify each part and describe its function.
In this euglena worksheet, students read information about these unicellular organisms. Students then color in the different structures of the euglena on a diagram. Students complete 10 short answer questions.
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.
This laboratory activity is valuable practice in comparing features of different organisms. You could use it to introduce junior biologists to protozoans. The materials and procudures for the learners are simple, and analysis questions are provided to wrap up the activity. The visual appearance of the worksheet is not attractive, but the activity itself is of value.  Some  may not like the spelling of "ameba." If that is the case, you can imitate the worksheet using "amoeba."
Students explore the 5 kingdoms of living things. In 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.
In this biology learning exercise, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms related to the classification of living things. There are 32 biology terms located in the word search.
Five pages provide thorough coverage of three protozoans: euglena, amoebae, and paramecia. For each, junior biologists read factual text, label the organism, and write answers to several questions. This neatly organized assignment is five pages long and makes an ideal preparation for examining these protists in the laboratory.
In this classification worksheet, students review the basics of taxonomy and Linnaeus' system of classification. This worksheet has 4 fill in the blank and 16 multiple choice questions.
In this classification worksheet, students review the Linnaeus' system of classification and compare the different kingdoms. This worksheet has 4 fill in the blank and 16 multiple choice questions.
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.
In this protists worksheet, 9th graders complete the table identifying several types of protists and matching the correct picture to them. Then they describe and name what phylum or class each protist belongs to.
In this protozoan activity, high schoolers answer 26 short answer questions about the various aspects of the Protozoan Kingdom. They also fill in a chart about algae and determine if the type is single or multicellular.
