Students of all ages love getting to know the weatheronauts. They are cute little weather-loving aliens from the planet Luna Nimbus. There are 12 in the weatheronaut family; the student's task is to use the provided dichotomous key to map out each weatheronaut into the correct species.
The second portion of this activity is designed so that students must create their very own dichotomous key using the 6 creatures provided. The creatures are designed so that a simple dichotomous key can be made in 5-6 easy steps so that students can get the hang of it. This second portion makes for a great homework activity, too!
3 pages. Answer keys included. PDF format.
