Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A dichotomous key is a sequence of steps that allows the identification of a living thing.

Group together objects that have similar values for each characteristic (similar size, shape, color). Determine which characteristic gives you the least number of subgroups.Then determine how to break down each subgroup into smaller subgroups, using couplets of characteristics.Keep working until you have separated all of your objects into their own groups.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
