Reflection: Lesson Planning Shoe Classification: An Intro to Cladistics - Section 1: Warm-up


If you have the ability, this is a great activity to use with a shared Google Doc.  This allows students to easily see (and have a record of) the class (or team) responses at the end of the activity.  I find that this is more  meaningful than just discussing what the other group answers were and it is more efficient than compiling a handout to provide at a later date.
