Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a basic table using the Click the cutest critter workbook in the above folder:

Import the table of URLs of appropriate images for each of the different values in the FamilyName column from the folder shown at the start of this exercise.

Configure your slicer to look - and work - something like this:
