In many cases, organisms with different taxonomic ranks will retain some similarities despite their differences. In this worksheet, students are asked to research the classification of two organisms, either provided by you or selected themselves, and also to address any similarities. Depending on the level of complexity desired, students can research organisms from two different kingdoms or stay within the kingdom of their choice. This is a great way for students to take a look at how close or distant two organisms are, even if they look completely different!
