Students were to complete a shark dichotomous key using the information that we learned in class. Upon completion, they were to choose an animal from a pre-constructed list found here (or have approval from teacher for another animal), and create a foldable showing the animal's classification. The foldable must include the following:
- A cover of sorts with a picture of the animal and its scientific name correctly written (10 points)
- The correct Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species for the organism (40 points)
- At least 3 characteristics of each of the taxa (species can include 3 interesting facts about that organism) (25 points)
- A picture on each taxon that relates to the level of classification or the characteristics (25 points) - Must be in color for full points
A very rudimentary example is shown below. This assignment is due Wednesday, October 14th.
Homework this weekend is pages 289-294.
