Lifes Filing System

1. Grab 5 colored papers off of the counter. 2. Fold the PURPLE paper almost in half (like a card), but leave an edge about half

an inch wide.
3. Fold the other papers over the top of that one leaving a half an each edge on each

one. Put them in this order: purple, green, yellow, pink, blue.
4. When you are done, your foldable should look like this: 5. If your foldable looks like it supposed to, put two staples at the top.


This is the information you should have on your SPECIES page:

Group of organisms that resemble each other closely in structure and function. Basic unit of scientific classification- MOST SPECIFIC Like species breed with like species

Part of scientific naming (binomial nomenclature)

The SECOND name in scientific naming written with a lower case letter and italicized. EXAMPLE: Lepus curpaeums- rabbit, scientific name



Here is the information you should have on your GENUS page:

Genus comes after family and before species. Part of the scientific naming system also know as binomial nomenclature. First name in scientific naming written with a capital letter and italicized. EXAMPLE: Felis catus- cat, scientific name



Here is the information you should have on your FAMILY page:

Family comes after order and before genus.

Here is the information you should have on your ORDER page:

Order comes after class and before family.

Here is the information you should have on your CLASS page:

Class comes after phylum and before order.

Here is the information you should have on your PHYLUM page:

Phylum comes after Kingdom and before Class. Plants are usually grouped by the term Division instead of the term Phylum. The animal kingdom contains about 35 phyla. The plant kingdom contains about 12 phyla or divisions.

(Formally known as Monera)

Animal Plant Fungi Protists
Eubacteria and Archaea

multicellular * multicellular Over 1 million * make own food species move from place to place

* multicellular * unicellular * unicellular * absorb nutrients from * complex cells * no nucleus other organisms (have nucleus) * eubacteria & * they are NOT plants * move with: archaea have flagella different cell cilia walls pseudopods

Broadest or most general level of classification. How are organisms placed into their different kingdoms? Cell type: complex or simple Ability to make food Number of cells in their body
All organisms are split into Kingdoms: Animal: organisms that usually move from place to place and find their own food. Plant: organisms that make their own food and do not actively move around from place to place. Fungi: organisms that absorb food from living and once living things. Protists: organisms tat have single, complex cells Eubacteria & Archeobacteria: organisms that have single, simple cells.

Domains of Life
Can grow in the dark

Absorb nutrients from other organisms

Multicellular, produce own food Move from place to place by themselves. Single-cell, have nucleus, move with flagella, cilia, pseudopods

unicellular, no nucleus

Unicellular, no nucleus, different cell wall from bacteria

Life is divided into domains, which are subdivided into further groups

All life can be divided into 3 Domains. Domains tell you the type of cell inside an organism.
Bacteria Single-celled organisms No nucleus

Archaea Single-celled organisms No nucleus Different cell wall from bacteria Eukarya Organisms with cells that contain a nucleus All cells in this Domain keep their DNA inside the nucleus Ex: Animalia, Fungi, Plantae, Protista

Archaea vs. Bacteria Similarities Differences

No nucleus Small cells One- celled (unicellular) Can reproduce by diving in two. Cell walls are made up of different material Archaea live in extreme environments: hot springs, geysers, salt flats Bacteria can live almost anywhere

Timeline of Scientific Events

Aristotle 300s BC Microscope Late 1500s 5 Kingdoms Carl Linnaeus 1700s DNA 1900s



Lived over 2,000 years ago Greek Philosopher Developed the first classification system His system consisted of two groups: plants and animals

Lived during the 1700s Father of Taxonomy Created the classification system we use today This system consists of seven groups: Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
