Scientific Classification Song (Taxonomy)

Science Songs

Animals, animals, animals, traits they vary
Size, shape, diet, habitat, and their type of babies
So this man, Linnaeus, wanted to organize living things
So he made a system, we call a taxonomy  

So every living thing is sorted, sorted
In seven major levels, seven, seven

And at the top, starting broad
Specific at the bottom
After domain, broadest rank
It starts with the

Kingdom
And Phylum, Class, Order
Family, Genus, ends with Species, start

Kingdom
And Phylum, Class, Order
Family, Genus, ends with Species, start

Let’s take a dog’s taxon
Their Kingdom, Animalia
Their Phylum is Chordata
And Class, Mammalia
Then Order, Carnivora
And Family, Canidae
Canis is the Genus
And Species level, Canis Lupus

Scientists, scientists, scientists claim six Kingdoms
Plants, Animals, Eubacteria, Protists, Fungi, Archaea
And then the Phylum divided into thirty Phyla
More similar characteristics they have in common

Then Phyla broken down to Classes, Classes
And Order is even smaller branches, branches
Family is next, more common
Genus, we’re close to the end
Most specific are Species
Like humans, Homo Sapiens

Kingdom
And Phylum, Class, Order
Family, Genus, ends with Species, start

Kingdom
And Phylum, Class, Order
Family, Genus, ends with Species, start

Let’s take a dog’s taxon
Their Kingdom, Animalia
Their Phylum is Chordata
And Class, Mammalia
Then Order, Carnivora
And Family, Canidae
Canis is the Genus
And Species level, Canis Lupus
