Product Details

Fictitious organisms, the Norits from the planet Norad, provide an excellent and motivating first experience in the use of a dichotomous key. The unique and unfamiliar structures possessed by the Norits create interest as students use the provided dichotomous key to identify the genus and species name of all ten provided organisms. After naming the ten provided organisms, students will then be challenged to draw diagrams of other Norits. An excellent introductory, hands-on activity using a dichotomous key.

Super Value Kit is complete for a class of students working individually. All materials are reusable.
