Classification of Organisms Kit (with perishables)

(in stock)


Grades 9–12. A class of 30 students working in groups of 4 observe and record data on the characteristics of several organisms belonging to different animal phyla. The data is then used to rank the organisms from simple to complex and create a simple phylogenetic tree. In the process, students reinforce concepts presented in their textbooks and apply their knowledge and understanding through discussion with classmates. Kit ships with perishable materials included for immediate use. Note: For best results, use perishable materials within 2 to 3 days of receipt.
