Activity Description of "Classifying and Sequencing"

Title Classifying and Sequencing
Audience 9th & 10th grade; Life Sci., Biology, Integrated
Abstract Classifying and sequencing are fundamental skills in a scientist's repertoire. This series of activities leads students to exercise observational skills to identify characteristics in sets of "organisms" that enable the set to be divided dichotomously into subsets using both single and multiple characters. Students develop dichotomous schemes and keys to both imaginary and real populations. In addition, some criteria can be used to sequence the members of a population.
