Classification

Classification

Explores classification in biology as well as taxonomy hierarchy: domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species with The Amoeba Sisters! This video also discusses the importance of scientific names and why classification can have major changes due to DNA and cell structure evidence. Video has a handout: http://www.amoebasisters.com/handouts.html. See table of contents by expanding details 👇

P.S. When we went back through subtitles, we realized we have a mispronunciation. Oh Archaea. We’ve heard ar-KEE-ə. We’ve heard ar-KAY-ə. But there’s a mispronunciation here for that domain just to let you know.

The Amoeba Sisters videos demystify science with humor and relevance. The videos center on Pinky’s certification and experience in teaching biology at the high school level. For more information about The Amoeba Sisters, visit:

    This video was recommended viewing for my child’s third-grade homeschool curriculum. Given that I see college students in here singing the praises of this video, I won’t feel too badly for not feeling my 8-year-old doesn’t have an adequate grasp of these concepts yet…

    TFW when you’re going back through subtitles and you realize you have a mispronunciation >_< Oh Archaea. We write down everything we make a mistake on so we can be better next time. We’ve heard ar-KEE-ə. We’ve heard ar-KAY-ə. But there’s a mispronunciation here for that domain just to let you know.
