This print-and-go QuickNotes set is a fast and easy way to introduce students to the topics of classification and dichotomous keys! Have you ever needed a clear, concise notes page for your students? I created these notes and activities as a resource for my students after realizing that they needed more organization for notes in their interactive notebooks. I soon realized that they had other benefits- a consistent structure that students can recognize and anticipate, an easy-to-understand activity to go along with the notes, and a quick, concise reference that stopped students from getting lost in extra detail. You get a half page of quick notes on classification and binomial nomenclature and an accompanying quick check practice on scientific naming, and a second page of notes on how to use a dichotomous key with a template for creating your own key alone or as a class!
This download includes the following:
*A teacher's guide with tips and tricks to using these notes and an answer key for the practice pages
*4 different versions of each notes page sized to fit in an interactive composition notebook, from a fully filled-in page with pictures to a blank outline- add as much or as little detail as your students need!
*Two quick activities, one on writing scientific names and comparing organisms, and a template for creating a dichotomous key
