Create a Cladogram of Shapes
A cladogram is a branching diagram that shows relationships between species. The images below show several examples of how cladograms for different groups could be organized:
1. Cut out the shapes below and group them according to their similarities.
2. Arrange them onto a cladogram which considers features that the shapes share.
3. Include descriptions for each of the main branches on your diagram.
Other Resources on Cladograms

Taxonomy Project - students create their own kingdoms, phyla..etc and design organisms
