This is a booklet that I created for my students to record information on each of the 6 kingdoms. My students used this booklet over the course of two class period and rotated stations to find the information/notes for their booklet. I set up 6 stations, one for each kingdom. I used reading sections from our textbook for the bulk of the station material. The students worked in groups to collaborate, reflect, and fill out their booklet for each of the kingdoms. We then discuss each of the kingdoms as a class to make sure that student had an opportunity to ask questions and make further connections.
Tip: I tend to print the cover page separate from the rest of the pages so that I can copy it on colored paper to spruce up their booklets.
This booklet could also be used as a review where students fill out the information based on information that they already learned about the kingdoms. Students could also use this as research guide if they are assigned to look up the characteristics of the kingdoms online.
