I remember looking at this animal under a microscope in 7th grade, but I just cannot remember it's name. It had a phlagellum, moved around freely, would actively pursue food, was roughly the shape of a protist, and was green due to its chloroplast. So if anyone could tell me it's kingdom/phylum etc or anything about it, that'd be helpful.

I believe the little bugger you're referring to is a euglena.
