· Select one characteristic that will sort all the trees into two groups—B and C. (They either have the characteristic or they don’t.) Record this characteristic. Organize your cut-out pictures into the two groups.

· Looking at group B, select one characteristic that will sort the trees into two groups—D and E.

· Continue sorting all the trees into groups, and record the characteristics used. You are finished sorting when only one tree is left in each group.

· Each step of your key should offer two choices: has the characteristic, or doesn’t have the characteristic.
