Google slides present a case of human evolution and the evolution of body lice. Students read details and data and answer questions in small groups.
This activity was modified from the HHMI Activity on color variation in the rock pocket mouse which illustrates evolutionary concepts such as fitness, natural selection, and mutation.
Students analyze data regarding methicillin and penicillin resistant bacteria, focusing how hospitals inadvertently drive the evolution of resistant strains. Each section of the case explores an aspect of dealing …
Explore the relationship between mutation, selection strength and the rate of evolution by using a simulation, which shows how a population evolves.
Students to examine two lakes and compare the types of fish in each. They learn how lakes form, and why spines may be an advantage for some …
A short explanation of phylogeny and using cladograms, where students analyze a diagram, identify derived characters, and then construct their own cladogram.
The production of cyanide by clovers with white stripes is an evolutionary advantage is some environments, but not others.
Using the PHeT simulator on natural selection, students answer essential questions about selection factors, phenotypes, and population growth.
