In this activity, students will use magazine images to create their own creature. Their creature must fit into the seven levels of classification, but the creativity of the assignment is endless. Students will use a chart to guide their thinking, but they must develop their own genus and species independently.
I have included one regular version of the assignment as well as a highly modified special education version. In addition, I attached a sample so you can see how the assignment can be done. The document is made in Word so editing can be done. Students seemed to really love this hands-on assignment that helped them to better understand the seven levels of classification. Enjoy!!!
