These cards are a great way for students to examine common misconceptions about evolution. There are 6 cards, each containing an evolutionary myth. Cards come in color and in grayscale. Two different card back options allow the cards to be somewhat customizable. An answer key is included.
The cards are easy to use: simply cut out and distribute. Students can work individually or in groups to figure out why the statements on the cards are incorrect, and/ or to write their own, corrected versions.
These cards can be used to either introduce or wrap up a unit on evolution. Other possible uses include:
- Review for a test on evolution.
- The basis of a mini-research project that students present to the class.
- The subject of a student-created bulletin board.
