Claim, Evidence, Reasoning, and Rebuttal (C.E.R.R) for Rapid and Slow Life History Patterns Foldable.
Rapid and Slow Life History Patterns are taught when studying populations during Ecology. The life history of a species is the pattern of survival and reproduction events typical for a member of a species. They involve Natural Selection and tradeoffs between growth, survival, and reproduction for the success of the species to pass on their genes to future generations. This foldable consists of Life History Patterns, explanations and examples for Body Size, Maturation, Time of Reproduction, and Life Span. Students will use their foldable which can be used complete or teacher driven and read the short excerpt to argue the question: Why would it be more advantageous to have a rapid or slow life history?
