PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Laboratories are great for reinforcement of learning! They allow students to take their knowledge and apply it to the outside world while still practicing and reinforcing concepts!
This download consists of two labs and over a dozen worksheets:

1. Create Your Own Dichotomous Keys
This not only allows for the initial, surface level understanding of what a dichotomous key is, but allows the student to fully immerse themselves and gain a much deeper understanding of the entire process. Students must create their own dichotomous keys using selected species. They are given two formats they can use, either graphical or traditional.

2. Junkfood Kingdom
Students have to place themselves in the shoes of a taxonomist. They are given a variety of snack foods, chips, granola bars, popcorn... basically whatever is handy. Based on the students in this class, this lesson is highly adjustable. Lower level class? Limit the number of 'junkfoods' or make the distinctions between each more easily recognizable. Have a higher level class? Increase the number of 'junkfoods' and make the distinctions between each not so clear. There are 5 reflection questions that must be answered and turned in with their classification system they created.

3. Comparing Domains
This is a three-comparison Venn Diagram assessment. Students are required to spot the differences and similarities among all three domains.
