Classification Crisis

WebQuest is a tool that is an inquiry-oriented activity that uses web-based resources for teaching and learning. The web-based resources are used to help students accomplish an authentic task.

I used the Quest Garden website to create my WebQuest. My WebQuest is called Classification Crisis. It should be used with students who are in the middle school grades learning about the classification system in their science class.

In this WebQuest the students are researching about the 6 different kingdoms of the classification system and explain it to Carl Linnaeus who is the father of taxonomy. When Carl Linnaeus created the classification system there were only two kingdoms, plants and animals. But today, many changes have been made to his classification system and the students task is to be able to explain the 6 kingdoms to Carl Linnaeus.
