This is an updated and revised version of the cell phone cladogram cooperative learning activity.
In this activity, the students are put into groups and analyze the different features of various cell phones. They are then to arrange them in their complexity, thus, coming up with a general cladogram. This is a very effective exercise to introduce and/or reinforce cladogram drawing since it allows the students to arrange them based on their complexity, and also see how organisms (or phones) have evolved.
I have revised this edition to fit in with the new phones (Iphone 6 and Samsung) and made it that it is classroom friendly. On a side note, the students will see that there hasn't been that much progress in terms of the technology is concerned.
How to use this product:
There is a summary table where the students record the responses.
There are 22 different phone cards where you have to print and cut out. Distribute them randomly so that they are not already pre-arranged in their level of complexity.
Have the students go at it and facilitate around the room.
