Patch Pick: The Tree of Life lab

The Pukeko Patch kids recently caught up with one of our favourite YouTube channels, Minute Earth.
The video they watched included a promotion of Minute Earth’s website where you are able to interactively explore the Tree of Life. The video was about clades and is called You Are A Fish

The website – – includes a section called the Tree of Life Explorer.

It makes a good first entry to our Patch Pick series, where I post about interesting websites, apps or other resources we come across in our internet wanderings.

Does your kid loves science? Are you learning about how all life on Earth is connected?  This is a tool for you.
It is graphical and has links to websites like the Global Biodiversity Information Facility. That will launch a whole new world of exploration and information gathering.
