This Living Environment Regents lab has three parts.
The first part of the lab teaches students how to write a dichotomous key, including a sample dichotomous key.
The second part of the lab asks students to design a dichotomous key to separate 8 different species of birds.
The third part students will sort different big cat species cards to create another dichotomous key. This third part is geared for our tactile learners.
The lab and the Big Cat cards are included in this digital file.
