Discusses how evidence from living species provides clues about evolution.
This lesson includes power point presentation, and pictures on comparative evolution of whales.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Living Species.
To increase reading comprehension, activate prior knowledge, develop collaboration and communication with peers, and determine how key vocabulary words relate to one another using Text Scan.
To emphasize students’ understanding of key words and practice applying the definitions of the vocabulary words to examples and drawings using the Frayer Model.
Covers violent behavior in primates and how this relates evolutionarily to humans. Looks at the scientific method and assumptions and prejudices people have brought to research.
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.
Addresses the use of the term “living fossils” pointing out that organisms change genetically if not phenotypically, thus “Living Fossil” is a misnomer. Provides another angle from which to understand natural selection.
This study guide looks at Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection. It also looks at some of the evidences supporting the theory of evolution (comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, biogeography).
