  • The five kingdoms of living things are
  • Monerans (bacteria) Monerans have one cell with
    no nucleus
  • Protists (algae, amoebas) Protists have one
    cell, but each cell has a nucleus
  • Fungi (mushrooms, yeast, molds) Most are many
    celled. They are like plants, except they cannot
    make their own food and must absorb food from
    other living things.
