Taxonomic Twisters Students will learn the current classification system, binomial nomenclature, use of dichotomous key and marine diversity. Students organize objects into groups based on a classification system of their choosing. Students investigate many of the marine phyla and classes, construct a creature that will have the characteristics of these groups, attempt to classify the organism and present finding to the class.
