We provide a geometrical interpretation of the classification of supersymmetric p-dimensional extended objects. Specifically, we show that the action describing such an object exists by virtue of a nontrivial class of the (p+2)th Chevalley-Eilenberg cohomology of superspace, considered as the super translation group.
