The Science of Taxonomy is the classification and sorting of living things. If someone said: "Look at that bird!" we might look up because we think of birds as living things that fly. Of course, the bird might be standing on the group, but unless someone points at it, we'd probably look up.
In science, we sort just about everything, from individual cells and cell activity to types of labs and subjects. Sorting keeps us organized and helps us to better understand the world around us.
