What to do: Study the illustrations of the
creatures and develop a possible
classification scheme based on information
provided.

You must be able to justify and defend your
method.

 1.    Note feature similarities and
   differences of the creatures. Construct
   a table to organize data such as (but not
   limited to) hair, antennae, and neck.

 2.    Place the cards in groups based on
   similarities and differences observed.
   Once group is in agreement, construct
   another table to list characteristics
   common to each group.

 3.    Get a set of Newly Discovered
   Organism Cards from teacher. Take each
   organism and suppose that it was just
   discovered. Where do they fit into your
   system of organization? Will you have to
   create a new group?


 4.    Be able to explain your
   classification scheme to the large group.
   Present your table to group.

What did you learn?
1.   How are organisms classified?



2.    What benefits come from classifying
  organisms?



3.    How would you further classify
  yourself as an individual? What traits
  would be important in the classification?


4. Where would you begin if you had to
classify an unknown plant?
