                              Classification Flow Chart
The numbers on the flow chart on page 1 refer to these questions. Follow the line and ask the
question with the same number. The answer will tell you which line to follow.

1.    Is it alive?
2.    Was it once alive?
3.    Can you see it without a microscope?
4.    Is it an animal or a plant?
5.    Does it have a backbone?
6.    Does it have a jointed covering over the body?
7.    Does it have a shell?
8.    Is it warm-blooded or cold-blooded?
9.    Does it have feathers?
10.   Does the adult take oxygen from air or water?
11.   Does it have dry, scaly skin and lay eggs on land, or does it have moist skin and lay eggs in
      water?.
12.   What kind of mammal is it:
             • does it lay eggs?
         or • does it have very small young that climb into a pouch?
         or • does it have bigger young that can live outside the mother (placental mammal)?

cold-blooded = poikilothermic = body tem-
perature changes with the outside temperature.

2.      Does it reproduce by seeds?
3.      Does it have flowers?
4.      Does it have roots?

chlorophyll = the green chemical in the cells of all green plants. Chlorophyll helps the plant to use
the sun’s energy to grow. {See photosynthesis}.

fungus {fungi} = Not true plants. They can’t use the sun’s energy. They use dead plants and ani-
mals for food. {Examples: mushrooms}
