You'have'just'been'hired'at'the'OIC'zoo,'which'is'a'brand'new'zoo'and'growing!'Before'it'gets'any'bigger,'the'
zoo'owner'has'asked'you'to'classify'the'animals'that'are'there'into'two'large'groups'for'easier'navigaEng,'
feeding,'and'habitat'design.'This'informaEon'will'help'the'zoo'owner'design'the'blue'prints'for'the'zoo!''
'
Here'is'a'list'of'the'current'animals'living'at'the'zoo:'bats,'eagles,'ostriches,'turtles,'giraffes,'octopus,'Grizzly'
bears,'lions,'alligators,'elephants,'and'beluga'whales.''
'
Try'to'group'the'organisms'into'2'large'groups'and'2'sub'groups'as'evenly'as'possibly.'Think'of'features'that'
they'share'when'grouping'them,'such'as'where'they'live,'how'they'eat,'or'how'they'give'birth,'or'any'other'
features!'It'can'be'any'similarity'or'difference'that'you'think'of.'

[less'|'more]'variaEon.''
'
In'biology,'scienEsts'use'a'taxonomy'ladder'to'help'classify'organisms.'The'ladder'begins'with'one'large'
group'called'the'Domain,'which'could'contain'millions'of'species,'and'ends'with'one'small'group'that'
typically'has'ONE'organism'in'it,'called'the'species.''
'
The'order'is'as'follows:'Domain,'Kingdom,'Phylum,'Class,'Order,&Family,'Genus,'Species.''
Create'a'mnemonic'to'help'you'remember'the'order'of'the'levels,'from'domain'to'species.''
An'example'would'be'“Dear'King'Philip'Came'Over'For'Good'Spagheg”.''
