In this article, students will explore the scientific classification system as well as cladograms and phylogenetic trees. Students will be introduced to taxonomy, binomial nomenclature, and the basics of relatedness between organisms. Embedded questions will probe students to find these patterns of relatedness throughout the article, with the summary questions focusing on reading/making cladograms and phylogenetic trees, as well as drawing important conclusions from the data. This article can be used in support of Tennessee State Science Standard 8.LS4.2, but is best as an introductory article. Any state that uses NGSS will also find support with this information.

NGSSMS-LS4-2
Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships. Emphasis is on explanations of the evolutionary relationships among organisms in terms of similarity or differences of the gross appearance of anatomical structures.
NGSSHS-LS4-1
Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence. Emphasis is on a conceptual understanding of the role each line of evidence has relating to common ancestry and biological evolution. Examples of evidence could include similarities in DNA sequences, anatomical structures, and order of appearance of structures in embryological development.
