Stuck finding a resource that helps teach cladograms and evolutionary trees? Look no more. This is a 5 page PDF that is a great introductory tool to cladograms and evolutionary trees. It is completely self-contained so it would also make a great sub plan on the subject! I've received some wonderful feedback on this item and I'm glad to be assisting students in learning about this topic! *Bonus- digital version included as a Google Drive link to support distance learning.

What's covered:

☞ Analysis of a cladogram

☞ Students must build their own cladograms (one time using information provided and a second time creating their own derived characters/information).

☞ A brief introduction to evolutionary trees

☞ Analysis of an evolutionary tree/labeling

The information is scaffolded and easily adaptable.

5 pages; answer key included.

In class assignment, sub plan, or could be split up as homework.
