▬▬▬▬▬▬ COURSE SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬ Mammals are classified into taxonomical groups called "orders." We'll study what traits and behaviors each order shares with the Pokémon we know and love.

We'll become pros at using a Venn Diagram as a comparison tool, and we'll try our hand at Dichotomous...
By the end of the course, students should be able to: ♦ Explain the basics of Biological Classification Systems. ♦ Understand how DNA, fossils, and evolutionary lines are all building blocks of modern taxonomy. ♦ Describe the commonalities that all mammals share. ♦ Compare and contrast two similar creatures using a Venn Diagram. ♦ Explain the traits and behaviors of a variety of mammals of different orders. ♦ Draw a cladogram and explain its usefulness in taxonomy. ♦ Know how to use a Dichotomous Key, and how to create your own.
