Introduction to Taxonomy

This activity will use the Guide to the Salt Marshes and Tidal Creeks of the Southeastern United States as a way of exploring the different organisms that live in the salt marsh habitat. Students will use critical thinking skills to match descriptions to the correct organism and also classify organisms based on different physical and behavioral characteristics. This activity also allows for students to conduct additional research to learn more about an organism by using the guide as a reference.
