Welcome to the Kingdoms of Life. We are learning about the classification of organisms through the division of Kingdoms. Although there are different ways to separate the living organisms of Earth, we are focusing on the main five of Animal, Plant, Fungi, Protist, and Monera.
Below are some good websites to help you to begin to understand how organisms are placed into each Kingdom. Use these to help do your homework.
