Adaptations Modeling using Google Slides Manipulative- APES, AP Bio, CED aligned

- I have been teaching AP Biology since 2014 and have made several resources that really improve my students' understanding of content. Here's a big ol' bundle of those things- see individual products for more info about each. Enjoy!Price $80.00Original Price $112.50Save $32.50
In order to make sure my students fully understand adaptations, I have them work in small groups (which I choose) to model allele frequency changes over time. Incorporating a math component, this activity is aligned to the APES CED.
I also teach AP Biology, and I can see how this can be EASILY modified for AP Bio students & Hardy-Weinberg calculations--all you'd have to do is throw in the words, "Use Hardy-Weinberg to show changes over time," and you'd be good to go.
Being all digital, this works well for distance learning. I had hybrid groups in class, with my in-person students working with students via Zoom, and it went smoothly (they shared the Google Slides and worked off the shared version).
I have included a video explaining how I use this in my class, how I group my students for success, what to look for when conferencing with students/grading them, and how you could differentiate this for use in general bio classes, too.
