We use the case study of pocket mice on lava flows in the American Southwest to look at Natural Selection.
We started today by comparing the embryos of different animals. How do you think this is evidence for evolution? Look at the comparative embryology attachment and play along with the other handout.
We finish up our timelines today. First we add the last list of events, then do the analysis.
Use the links below to help you with the Human Evolution Timeline.
We use this BBC video series to explore the adaptations that have pushed evolution along. We are also adding the attached list of events to our timelines.
So much of life as we know it has developed in the last 500 million years of Earth's history. The individual timeline will expose students to all of the major events of this time period.
Today we started making a timeline of the history of the Earth. We will be looking at major events in the history of the Earth and life on Earth. The first 3.6 billion years will be done as a group, while everybody will do the most recent billion years on an individual timeline.
Today and tomorrow we will be comparing the anatomy of different animals to get a sense of how they are or aren't related. We start with a look at the different orders of Class Aves - the birds.
This activity uses anatomical evidence to identify the relationships between species. Use the 2 attachments below for the activity. The Whale Evolution link is for the highly proficient work.
