"The Living Kingdoms" introduces students to the concept that all living things can be grouped, or classified, based on various shared, structural characteristics. Students receive hands-on contact with live amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals along with representative plants and fungi.
"Biologists organize all living things into five groups called kingdoms. Three of these kingdoms are comprised of organisms having more than one cell and are referred to as multicellular. The kingdoms of multicellular organisms are Animal, Plant, and Fungi. This program explores the differences and similarities between these groups, putting the emphasis on the Animal Kingdom".
