Think Garden: Plant Families

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

The Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle identified only two major kingdoms of living things: plants and animals. With microscopes and other modern technology, scientists have since identified four more kingdoms: fungi, protists, archaebacteria and eubacteria.

In this video from KET’s Think Garden collection, students get a complete breakdown of the scientific classification of living organisms. They’ll learn about the order of classification from largest to smallest: kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. Students will also get a closer look at some specific plant families to find out which fruits and vegetables are in the same family.
