Dichotomous Keys

This week, our 5th graders took on the role of a scientist. With a partner, each “scientist” created a dichotomus key, which is an organized series of questions designed to lead to the identification of an unknown organism. Within each partnership, the “scientists” used their keys to identify various animals.
