Lesson Plan: Kingdom Monera Biology
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to describe the characteristics of organisms belonging to the kingdom Monera, recall the divisions of kingdom Monera as Eubacteria and Archaebacteria, and apply knowledge of these kingdoms to classify given organisms correctly.
Students will be able to
- describe organisms belonging to kingdom Monera as being unicellular, surrounded by a cell wall, and not possessing a membrane-bound nucleus,
- recall that kingdom Monera is divided into two groups, Eubacteria and Archaebacteria,
- compare and contrast the characteristics of organisms belonging to Eubacteria and Archaebacteria, including the composition of their cell wall, the environments in which they live, and their genetic material,
- give examples of organisms belonging to Archaebacteria and Eubacteria,
- classify given organisms using knowledge of these kingdoms.
Students should already be familiar with
- Whittaker’s 5-kingdom classification.
