Cladograms- This is a 5 page PDF that is a great introductory tool to cladograms and evolutionary trees. It is completely self-contained so it would also make a great sub plan on the subject!
☞ Analysis of a cladogram
☞ Students must build their own cladograms (one time using information provided and a second time creating their own derived characters/information).
☞ A brief introduction to evolutionary trees
☞ Analysis of an evolutionary tree/labeling
The information is scaffolded and easily adaptable.
5 pages; answer key included.
In class assignment, sub plan, or could be split up as homework.
