GROUPS OF ANIMALS QUIZ

Custom Search

All living organisms can be classified into five groups called Kingdoms.

The Animal Kingdom is one of these groups. It is sub-divided into groups called phyla (sing : phylum). Animals with the same characteristics are placed in the same phylum.

One way of deciding which phylum an animal belongs to is by using a key. by observing the animal and seeing whether or not it has the characteristics listed for the phyla you can place it in its correct group.

In this quiz you are asked to classify twenty different animals. You can use the key shown in the next column to help you. There table includes some hyperlinks to websites which help describe certain phyla and certain characteristics.
