Domains & Kingdoms Drag 'n Drop
What is this activity? This activity is a simple and easy way to check for student understanding about the characteristics of domains and kingdoms. The graphic organizer is a great visual that allows students to sort this information in their minds. Upon completing, it also gives a fantastic template to allow students to compare and contrast between kingdoms. The “drag ‘n drop” feature ensures that students aren’t including incorrect information in their organizer and are focused on the characteristics that you, as the teacher, feel are most important. It also includes a small open-ended section at the end for students to attempt to expand their thinking beyond the predetermined answers.
What do you get? Upon purchasing this product, you will receive a PDF file that contains EDITABLE links to two Google Drawings.

How to use? My suggestion would be to assign this through Google Classroom, choosing the option “make a copy for each student.” However, there are many ways that you could assign this resource. It could be done as a whole-class activity on a SMART or Promethean Board. It could be assigned to groups using a copy link. There are many ways that it can be assigned to students! Most importantly, however it is assigned and completed, it will be a great, simple review of kingdom characteristics. I hope you and your students enjoy it!
