This 2-Day Classification of Living Things lesson package begins with an inquiry activity and is followed by an introduction to species classification/taxonomy. It then describes the 6 Kingdoms, taxonomy, how organisms are named, and ends with a description of dichotomous keys and how they're used. The lesson ends with an overview of how to create a dichotomous and an activity where the students get to apply what they have learned. The package also contains a WebQuest on the 6 Kingdoms which is a great way to get the kids engaged and interested in the topic.

In order, the lesson covers:

  • How living things are grouped
  • Taxonomy
  • Naming Organisms
  • The 6 Kingdoms
  • Dichotomous Key

Included in the lesson package is:

  • Google and Office versions of each resource
  • The teacher version of the presentation
  • The student version of the presentation
  • 6 Kingdom WebQuest
  • FOUR videos embedded into the presentation
  • Student lesson handout

  • This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.


The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

I also have a range of assignments and lessons/units from other grade levels at my store. Please CLICK HERE to have a look around and don’t forget to follow if you like what you see.
