Classification Chart of the animal kingdom
This is an easy-to-read reference that can be used from elementary ages up through college. The file gives you a chart listing all the major types of animals in the world, from microscopic creatures to elephants and whales, listing them in their phyla, classes, orders and families.
I like to print the chart double-sided so that it takes less paper, but single-sided is fine, too.
Please note that there are other downloads with classification activities, as well as classification songs under the MUSIC tab, that can be used in conjunction with this chart.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that classification is constantly changing (in minor ways), so if the information listed here doesn’t line up with what is listed on Wikipedia, for example, use the updated information online and make a note of the change on this chart.
