In this video your students and kids will learn how animals are classified into different groups. Classification breaks very large groups down into smaller groups. This makes them easier to be studied. Scientists classify animals, plants and insects based on things they have in common. Just like kids would do with their toys!
Taxonomy means to classify living things. Scientists and biologists use a taxonomy chart to classify all the organisms on Earth. This chart includes the following groups: Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species. Throughout the video we will learn about the different taxonomies, how animals are classified and spend a little more time on vertebrates and invertebrates. By the end you kid will have a more solid understanding of what makes animals different and may be able to classify them into their proper taxonomies.
