This is a very simple key and should be used at the beginning of a unit on classification. The purpose of this key is to teach the students how to use a dichotomous key. A dichotomous key is a classification key that gives the students two choices to choose from before moving on to the next set of choices. Dichotomous keys are often found in field guide manuals. This key is a key to the orders of the mammals. It is very short and simple. Students are given a list of mammals and they have to use the key to find out which order the mammal belongs to. After using this as instruction for teaching the concept of the dichotomous key, I would give the students a more complex key to try.
Exceptional! The usual quality, fun, well constructed, clear and wonderful product by Science Stuff! Thank you! I have 2 other dichotomous key products of yours to use with this--preparing for next year--this is PERFECT! Thank you!
