Kingdoms Gallery Project Instructions by 3CVp5o2Z


									                          Kingdom Gallery Project Instructions
Purpose: To demonstrate knowledge of the organization of organisms.
   Specifically to understand:
     Organisms carry out common life processes differently.
     All organisms and systems are organized from simple parts into complex systems that must
       maintain homeostasis in order to survive.
     The millions of different species of plants, animals, and microorganism that live on earth today are
       related by descent from common ancestors.
     The great diversity of organisms is the result of over 3.5 billion years of evolution that has filled
       every available niche with life forms.
     Modern classification systems are based upon biochemical and genetic evidence that indicates
       evolutionary relationships.
     Evolution explains the number of different life forms we see including similarities in anatomy and
     Viruses are complex structures and their evolutionary relationship is still under investigation.

Materials: Project sheet, individual kingdom assignments, rubric, textbooks, online and other reference
            materials, poster-board, markers and/or colored pencils
