A Conversation for Mnemonics and Other Learning Devices

Classification of Man

Post 1


In high school, we were assigned the task in Biology of memorizing (BSp, memorising) the scientific classification of man. The acronym mnemonic that I created must have worked, because I have remembered the classification for over 30 years. It's somewhat silly, but that probably makes it work better.

"King Arthur picked cherries so Vicky could make one pie for his German helper, Sally Schwann."

Kingdom - Animal
Phylum - Cordata
SubPhylum - Vertebrata
Class - Mammalia
Order - Primates
