What is classification ?

Classification is when there are multiple different groups mixed up in one group. You would then make different groups with some of the tittles  mammals and insects or mammals and birds. Then you would put all the animals that are mammals in to one group and all the birds or insects into the other group. Once you have done this then you would of classified different animals into classification files.

How are living animals classified ?
Even-though there are over 8.7 million species in the world we still classify them by every time a new species of animal is discovered we make a file called a classification file where all the classification categories in the world are made and we write there name inside of the classification file and write how many are living right now to see if they will be becoming instinct or there are so much of them.  

This is Carl Linnaeus one of the best scientists in the world and even though he was alive a very long time ago, he is still told about to this day because of how smart he was. He was the first person to make classification. He was born in Sweden on the 27th of May 1707; over 300 years ago and he is still talked about in 2023. He died on 10th of January 1778. He died of a stroke at the age of 71.

These are the 8 classification files for animals you have the domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species or the Eukarya, Animalia, Chordata, mammalian, Carnivora, Canidae, canis and Lupus.


This is the classification table. It tells you what classification you’re looking at and what animal or mammal or bird. This would help you if you are doing classifications and you don’t know what the animal is.
