What's in a Name? *suitable for home teaching*
This worksheet in this resource introduces students to the topics of classification and binomial nomenclature. The idea of hierarchy is illustrated, before explaining Linnaeus’s system of classification and the terms kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. There is also a useful introduction to the use of Greek and Latin vocabulary in science. Suggestions are made for more activity-based lessons in the detailed teachers' notes. This resource was produced by the Linnean Society. Founded in 1788, the Linnean Society is the world’s oldest active biological society and promotes the study of all aspects of the biological sciences, with particular emphasis on evolution, taxonomy and biodiversity.
