Families, Genera and Species Video. Learning Objectives for this video:

  • The Animal Family. Learn about Families Genera and Species. Explore the history and structure of the five-kingdom system of organism classification as you learn how the horse (or Equus caballus) is categorized by kingdom, phylum, subphylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.
  • Identify the seven main levels in the hierarchy of organism classification, with examples of each level.
  • Explain the five-kingdom system of classification and learn about each of its components (Animalia, Plantae, Monera, Fungi, and Protista).
  • Discover the history of the classification system and some of those who helped to develop it, including Aristotle and Carolus Linnaeus.
  • Learn the structural similarities scientists identify when they classify organisms.
  • Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities. Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
