We will use Branch, part of JIT to make branching keys.

  • Log into j2e
  • Go to “my files” then “shared files”.  Open River Animals
  • Click “sort” then make up Yes/No questions to sort the animals.
  • Adding more animals
    • When it tells you that your diagram is complete:
      • Play it to test it out
      • Add a new animal
        • Think of a new animal – you could use this website to help find new animals: A spotter’s guide to waterway wildlife 
        • Play the game and answer the questions
        • At the end say “no” then “yes” (you want to add it to the list)
        • Search using the world button and drag a picture into the box (use .png in your search to get a picture without a backgound)

  • Woodland Animals
  • Make sure you are in “advanced” mode
    • Click “sort” then make up Yes/No questions to sort the animals.
    • You could use this information sheet or fact sheets to help you or more detailed information from the Woodland Trust
    • Adding more animals
      • When it tells you that your diagram is complete:
        • Play it to test it out
        • Add a new animal
          • Think of a new animal and play the game and answer the questions
          • At the end say “no” then “yes” (you want to add it to the list)
          • Search using the world button and drag a picture into the box
  • Birds of Prey 
    • Use the RSPB website to find a fact about each bird and enter it into the description box.
    • Now make up Yes/No questions to classify the birds in a branching key.
    • Follow the instructions in the Woodland Animals above, to add more birds.
  • What else apart from animals could you classify using Branch?
