Investigating Tree Thinking & Ancestry with Cladograms
Davenport, K. D.; Milks, Kirstin Jane; Van Tassell, Rebecca
American Biology Teacher, v77 n3 p198-204 Mar 2015
Interpreting cladograms is a key skill for biological literacy. In this lesson, students interpret cladograms based on familial relationships and language relationships to build their understanding of tree thinking and to construct a definition of "common ancestor." These skills can then be applied to a true biological cladogram.
