A Peak Into Our Science Lesson

 Benjamin is studying Botany this year and one of the first lessons he had was to better understand Taxonomy, or how scientists break down and classify different organisms.

His job was to collect a variety of shoes (and bonus....organize the breezeway in his quest).

On the chart he then decided what main groupings or Kingdoms he would use to classify the shoes.

sneakers, boots, crocs, sandals

 And to put the shoes into piles depending on those Kingdoms.

breaking them down further...into smaller groups.

Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order

 A job well done!
