To activate prior knowledge, make personal connections, reflect on key concepts, encourage critical thinking, and assess student knowledge on the topic prior to reading using a Quickwrite.
To organize information and provide a visual representation that shows how factors (causes) produce an effect using a Cause and Effect Diagram.
Covers methods of evolution other than natural selection, effects of invasive species and ecosystems. Looks at changes in the cane toad population since their invasion of Australia.
This addresses the worldwide decline in amphibians, looking at how scientists are approaching this problem and what they are learning.
This covers rapid speciation, punctuated equilibrium and evolution by means other than natural selection. It covers how scientists use molecular techniques.
Uses unique deep-sea fish species to address fish biology, evolution, and ecology.
The Congo River is known for its diversity of unique species. Find out what researchers think is driving this process.
This study guide takes a look at population genetics, the Hardy-Weinberg theorem, and the forces of evolution, such as genetic drift and natural selection. It also examines how natural selection affects phenotypes.
