Experiment 1: Dichotomous Key Practice
A dichotomous key is an identification tool that starts with a broad defining
characteristics and splits into two options until an organism can be identified. In this
experiment, you will identify organisms by their binomial nomenclature using a
dichotomous key.
Materials
Dichotomous Key
Images of Organisms
Procedure
1. Start by observing organism i (Figure 2). Once you have taken notice of its
physical characteristics, use the dichotomous key (Figure 3) to identify the
organism.
2. Start at number 1 on the key and decide if the organism has feature 1a or
feature 1b.
3. Whichever option you choose, follow the dotted line over to the next step that
will state Go to #.
4. Go to that number and again decide between the two options.
5. Eventually you will wind up at a two name scientific name.
6. Once you have identified organism i record your finding in Table 3.
7. Repeat Steps 1 - 6 for all of the organisms in the dichotomous key (Figure 3).

Experiment 2: Classification of Organisms
Materials
Use Table 2 below as well as the ""tree"" (Figure 4, located at the end of this
procedure)
Procedure
1. Select the first organism from Table 4 (E. coli).
2. Use the tree (Figure 4, located at the end of this procedure) start at the
base, and answer each question until the organism reaches the end of a
branch. Write the organisms name in the red box.
3. Repeat this for the remaining organisms.
4. After classification, fill in Table 2 with the correct kingdom for each organism.

1. Did this series of questions correctly organize each organism? Why or why not?
2. What additional questions would you ask to further categorize the items within
the kingdoms (Hint: think about other organisms in the kingdom and what makes
them different than the examples used here)?
3. What questions would you have asked instead of the ones that you answered
about when classifying the organisms?"
