Protists and Fungi
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.

6 Kingdoms of Life Part 1: Archaebacteria, Eubacteria, Protist, and Fungi
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.
7th - Higher Ed Science
In this kingdom protista worksheet, middle schoolers 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.
6th - 8th Science
Protists - The Protozoans
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.
7th - 10th Science
Cells - Critical Thinking in Science
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.

The Five Kingdoms
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.
4th - 6th Science
Prokaryotes and Protists
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.
8th - 10th Science
Comparing the Amoeba to Paramecium
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.
7th - 9th Science
Sort through the "junk drawer kingdom" as the protists laugh at our attempts to classify them! AP biology classes consider the array of organisms that do not file neatly into the other four kingdoms of classification. Evidence for the theory of endosymbiosis is also listed in connection with why the protists are so diverse.
