Objective: Students will create a cladogram using pictures to demonstrate how cladograms depict relationships among organisms.
Cladogram Grab Bag Activity
In this activity, the students will grab a bag of pictures. The students will use those pictures to create relationships between those pictures. The students will construct their cladogram, including labeling the relationships.
**This activity is student-centered and engaging. This activity promotes higher order thinking and collaboration. **
Why choose this activity?
• Group work is always looked highly upon in science. Working collaboratively promotes higher order thinking.
• This is highly differentiated. Each group will make different relationships based on their zone of proximal development.
• Analyzing and creating is a higher level of thinking than providing the cladogram to the class.
• Students take ownership of the project, thus creating a higher quality product.
