The Taxonomic Hierarchy – or grouping things together!

After classifying sweets last week, we began looking at classification in a much more scientific way this week. We looked at the scientific names for several creatures such as: Panthera leo= lion

Elephas maximus = Asian elephant

Daucas carota= carrot

We watched two videos about the taxonomic hierarchy – which is just a scientific word for grouping things! We learned a mnemonic to help us remember the stages of classification:

I wonder if your child can remember what the initial letters stand for in the taxonomic hierarchy?

We classified the puma, a house cat and a human in this way.
