Product Description
Short daily quiz on The Classification Systems of Living Organisms (Classification and Taxonomy)

This quiz was written to go along with my Classification and Taxonomy PowerPoint, but can be successfully used with your own resources on classification.

I use this as a short quiz to check to see if my students are keeping up with their studying, but it can also be used as a homework assignment or a study guide for a chapter test on classification. It consists of 45 fill in the blank questions.

Topics covered are:
• The need for a system of classification.
• Summary of Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
• Taxonomy definition.
• Early attempts at classification: Aristotle, misuse of common names.
• Linnaeus: Seven levels of classification, binomial nomenclature, definition of species, the rules of binomial nomenclature.
• Modern taxonomy: phylogeny, phylogenetic tree, reading a phylogenetic tree, practice questions.
• Homologous, analogous, and vestigial structures.
• Modern taxonomy is based on: structural similarity, cellular organization, evolutionary relationships, biochemical similarities, genetic similarities, embryological similarities.
• Cladistics and cladograms: Definitions.
• 6-kingdom system of classification.
• Three domain system of classification.
• Comparison of kingdoms in the 6-kingdom system.

The product consists of a 2 page quiz for students and a 1 page answer key for teachers. This quiz was written with a typical biology I class in mind. It can easily be edited. You will receive both a pdf file and a Word document so that you can make changes to it to suit your needs.
