Teaching Idea

Creepy Critters:

The lead scientist from a newly discovered planet similar to Earth sends you illustrations of the organisms and asks you to help develop a classification system. Your role is to study the illustrations and come up with a possible classification scheme based on the information provided about each organism. You'll be asked to explain to the scientific team how and why you organized the creatures this way.
