Introduce your students to the Five Kingdoms through the process of classification. Students view illustrations of various life forms and use a simple, dichotomous key to determine the appropriate kingdom and phylum of each. In the process, they'll gather valuable summary information regarding what each life form "does for a living!" Grades 6-12.

Teach your students basic problem-solving skills! Challenge them to develop and test a hypothesis which determines the ideal environmental conditions for specially encapsulated sponge animals to emerge from their "cocoons". In the process, they learn the basics of how scientists design experiments, control variables, gather information, summarize and present data, and solve scientific problems. Grades 7-10
