In this engaging three part activity, students will practice using a simple dichotomous key, work in a group to create a dichotomous key for common objects, and complete an independent practice assignment.
Overview of Group Activity:
Student groups are provided bags containing 10-12 common objects such as paperclips, screws, safety pins etc. Groups will work together to create a dichotomous key that can be used to identify each object in their bag. Groups will then swap bags and corresponding keys and evaluate each other’s dichotomous keys for accuracy.
