    Classification Classification Presentation Transcript

    • Classification
      • Why we put organisms into groups
      • How we do this
    • The 2 name (binomial) system
      All organisms have 2 names – a name for the species and a name for a larger group called a genus.
      Both names are in latin
      So scientists all around the world understand
      The genus name comes first, and starts with a capital
      You underline the name ( in a book/ website it’s in italics)
      EgHomo sapiens ( humans)
    • Find some names for other organisms
      Go to www.wikipedia.com
      Type in:
      Cat
      Dog
      wolf
      Tiger
      Lion
      Any other organism
      WRITE DOWN THE LATIN NAMES FOR GENUS AND SPECIES.
      What do you notice about the tiger and the lion?
      What do you notice about the wolf and the dog? What does this tell you?
