This 38 slide PowerPoint introduces students to the animal kingdom. I use it in a unit studying taxonomy. The PowerPoint introduces 9 of the most common Phylum within this kingdom: Portifera (Sponges), Cnidarians, Rotifers, Mollusks, Annelida, Echinoderms, Arthropods, Platyhelminthes, and Chordates. Examples and pictures of species found in each Phylum are given. You may also want to purchase the student note taking worksheet that coordinates with this PowerPoint.
