Not only is it important to tell the difference between living things, but it is easier to study them if they are in groups. Moths belong to a group called insects. Moths like other insects have six legs. However, they also share many other things in common with insects, such as their skeleton and how they breathe.

What about plants? How are they put into groups? The most important difference between plants is how they reproduce.
