Do Protista, Monera or Animalia sound familiar? If not, don't fret and get ready to explore the familiar and not so familiar forms of life.

Organisms are classified into one of six Kingdoms of life. They are placed into these categories based on similarities or common characteristics.

Use the Classification of Life chart below to find out information, examples, and characteristics of each of the kingdoms. Just click on the image of the kingdom you would like to know more about.
