    A dichotomous key is a method scientists have developed for classifying organisms. For example, we can classify most organisms into one of two categories - plant or animal. One way animals can be classified is by the location or existence of their skeleton. Is their skeleton internal or external?

    Here is a link to a fun and interactive dichotomous key.  Check it out & practice identification of organisms in your neighborhood.
