I thought taxonomy was a simple straight forward matter so I thought I could teach it early (aka kindergarten – hey, why not?). Guess what? I am totally confused. I will use this post to try to straighten it all out and hopefully boil it back to simplicity. It doesn’t help that everyone has their own theory and no one agrees.

    It took me a couple days…but I finally tracked down this title that I used with David when he learned this stuff. He sorted Beanie Babies after reading it. 🙂

    It is, of course, oop.

    It's called: Benny's Animals & How He Put Them in Order by Milicent E. Selsam

    Let me know how this is going for you. I STILL get confused and I’ve been taught it numerous times since junior high!
