This activity can be used to reinforce the seven levels of classification. Students should have a general understanding of taxonomy and be able to understand an organism's scientific name (genus + species). Students will analyze a chart that reflects the scientific classification of four different plants. Then, they will have to answer analysis questions such as:
How many levels do all of the organisms have in common?
What is the scientific name of a dandelion?
An answer key is included, and the document is in Word to make editing possible.
