Product Description
This lab activity explores natural selection. The students will explore the idea of fitness based on the environment of Paper Falls where our various populations of beetles live but they have a predator, the Birds! The lab also includes a variation in the traditional natural selection lab because our beetles live in territories and they have different reproductive successes. Not all beetles are made equal!

By the way did I mention that the birds have terrible vision.

The lab is based on using Pop Beads but you can substitute Pop Beads with craft beads.
