This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to organize an interactive model for learning the classification system (taxonomy) of living things.
This demonstration can be used to help learners visualize DNA by lysing (breaking open) bacterial cells on a slide and “stringing up” the DNA with a toothpick in less than one minute.
In this interactive activity, learners analyze seashells to explore phylogeny and evolution. Learners identify similar and dissimilar seashells to create a phylogenetic tree.
In this activity, learners try to figure out who has their matching rock type by reading a description of their rock (no talking!).
In this web-based activity, learners try to figure out who in an online chat room has their matching puzzle piece.
In this online game, learners test their skills of categorization.
Learners practice their taxonomy skills by sorting a group of fasteners (e.g. rubber bands, buttons, paper clips, screws) into different categories.
