Bring a little holiday spirit into your biology lesson! This activity has student trace the "evolution" of Christmas tree decorations and create a cladogram organizing the trees. This activity has three different levels which allows for its use with different levels of students. This could be used as a review or as an activity to fill that tricky day before break.
The ability level of your students and the level of difficulty you assign will determine how long this activity takes. It is possible for very bright students this could be a class warm up, but for other students it may take 30+ minutes to complete.
