You are walking along in the woods and come across an organism that youve never seen
before. Its a small brown blob growing on the forest floor. You bring it back to the lab to
determine which kingdom it belongs in. Under the microscope you can see that it is made
up of many long, strand-like cells. The cells contain nuclei, mitochondria, and other
organelles. It has no mouth or stomach, so it appears to get its nutrition by absorbing the

nutrients in the soil. Using the dichotomous key below, which kingdom does this
organism belong to?
o Monera
o Plantae
o Animalia

o Dichotomous key:
o 1A. one-celled organism2
o 1B. multi-cellular organism3
o 2A. no organelles present..Kingdom Monera
o 2B. organelles presentKingdom Protista
o 3A. green in color..Kingdom Plantae
o 3B. color other than green..4
o 4A. eats food to get nutrition..Kingdom Animalia
