Dichotomous Key: Carnivorous, Poisonous and Curious Botanicals Ppt or Task Cards
Great Dichotomous Key on Botanicals. There are Carnivorous, Poisonous and just curious plants in this collection which spans the world.

This activity can be used in its power point format to upload to a classroom website and have the students use laptops or iPads to go through the pictures.

You could use the power point for whole class instruction and work through the dichotomous key will all the students participating.

If you do not have a class website / laptops or iPads you could print the slides out and use them as task cards set up in small groups around your class like centers.

You could also print out handouts with a few slides on each page for the students to use.

This activity has quite a few different ways it can be implemented into your classroom.

The dichotomous key with two different answer sheet forms and key. There is a student sheet and extension suggestions.

Great lesson for after state testing or when the kids get antsy before a holiday break!
