|Imagine you are
a paleontologist on a dig in Arizona. Your team just uncovered
many well-preserved bones, and together you have been able to
reconstruct a skeleton. Your challenge is to use clues about
the skeleton to determine what family this creature belongs
Before you begin, consider that scientists classify all living things into seven major groups: kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.
In this challenge, youre going to use this system (and lots of clues along the way) to figure out which family the mystery skeleton belongs to. Of course, to do this we need to start from the top, with the kingdom.
