Life - Primates

The primates are only a single order within the mammalia class, but they are the most advanced in terms of social interactions and the use of tools. This worksheet takes the primates and divides them into two groups: the prosimians and anthropoids. Students will identify characteristics of each primate shown, then classify them into the correct family.

Species: Hamadryas baboon, Japanese macaque, lar gibbon, orangutan, ring-tailed lemur, white-faced capuchin, chacma baboon, silverback gorilla.

Answer Key: Available as part of the Life Answer Key Collection for $8.00.
