Product Description
This Biology EOC Review activity will only take a few minutes, but strongly reinforces the key concepts involved in natural selection, including:

- The potential for exponential population growth
- Genetic variation within a population
- Struggle for existence
- Differential survival - organisms with favorable adaptations are more likely to survive
- Inheritance - surviving organisms pass their favorable adaptation to their offspring
