Explain how living things are organized for study.
Describe binomial nomenclature.
Explain Linnaeus’s system of classification.
Explain how evolutionary relationships are important in classification.
Identify the principle behind cladistic analysis.
Explain how we can compare very dissimilar organisms.
Name the six kingdoms of life as they are now identified.
Describe the three-domain system of classification
Identifying Big Ideas from Unwrapped Standards:
1. Classification is essential in understanding relationships between living things.
2. Scientists have developed techniques, including analysis of DNA and proteins, and
morphology to classify living things
Essential Questions from Big Ideas to Guide Instruction and Assessment:
1. Why is classification important to society?
2. What techniques are used to classify living things?
Possible Topics or Context: (what you will use to teach the concepts and skills-particular
unit, lessons or activities)

Pre-assessment
- Discuss requirements for survival. How have sharks, horsetails, crocodiles, etc.
been able to survive the past 100 million years? Students provide examples of
other types of survival (sports, empires, etc.).

Formative Assessment
- Students use keys, tables, and analysis of dissections to compare various living
things
- Dichotomous Key
- Classification Scheme Lab
- Animal Diversity Lab
