Transcript

  • 1. Classification
    • Why we put organisms into groups
    • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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?
