Six Kingdoms Classification Fun Summary
As an authentic research project, students are engaged and curious as they search through the ingredients found in a favorite candy bar to find the Kingdoms and hierarchical levels for each species.
At the end of your classification unit, this is a fun way to apply student knowledge. It uses the six kingdom classification system, DKPCOFGS, binomial names, yet is easily modified to your curriculum. It is provided in MS Word DOC format and PDF.
Student work pages and key are included (8 pages total) in MS Word Doc and PDF formats. Introductory PowerPoint and notes provide instructions and suggested extensions and research topics.
A ten screen PowerPoint is included that goes over the instructions and gives an example on how students may proceed, and example of student responses.
Both the worksheets and PowerPoint are easily differentiated for inclusive classes. This activity may be used to reinforce, a formative assessment, or an assessment.

I hope you enjoy this interactive and fun project as much as my students and I have!
