It would be really awesome if you did the science section before this part so you can get a handle on using a dichotomous key. Once you use this tree key, you’ll see what a dichotomous key is about. It’s where you have two choices as you separate items.
Go ahead and find a collection that you have at home or outside; different rocks, shells, weeds, games, books, magnets, shoes, it can be anything as long as there is a variety.
