Taxonomy Hands on Science for Homeschool Kids

Taxonomy for Kids

Using the Animal Fact Cards from the FREE Printable Habitat Adventure Game, my kids started sorting animals by their taxonomy. We started with putting all the animals part of the Kingdom Animalia in a pile (Hint: that will be all of them). Next we sorted them by Phylum, Class, Order, and Family. It was a great hands on way for kids to understand Taxonomy.
