The 5 kingdoms
Here's a really quick way of testing if you've learned the meanings of the key words in this section. Look at the key word on the card and see if you can remember its definition.
If you get stuck, you can be shown the mnemonic to reveal an image that should help you remember.
To check if you're right, or remind you if you've forgotten, press the card to flip it.
Go through the whole list to see how many definitions you can recall. Revisit any that you had difficulty remembering until you're confident you can recall all of them.
The five kingdoms are: Animals, plants, fungi, protists and bacteria.
The easiest way to remember how living organisms are separated is to picture our mnemonic story.
One day in the garden the king was planting some plants.
The king hurt his back (bacteria) lifting the heavy plant pots.
His fun guy (fungi) jester tried to cheer the king up as he sat on his throne.
This did not work and only annoyed the king who ordered his servants (the animals) to chase the fun guy from his castle.
The fun guy then started a protest (protists) outside the castle asking the king to let him back in.
