A quick 11 page Google Slide presentation introduces the concepts of homologous, analogous, and vestigial structures.

Students are then prepared to complete the 3 pages student inquiry activity where they will examine the anatomies of various species and create arguments with evidence as to whether the structures present are homologous and analogous. There is also true false questions where students will defend their response and finally an opportunity to construct explanations as to the ancient functions of vestigial structures.

With your purchase you will receive a printable PDF file with answer key. Please note:

  • Page 2 of this PDF contains a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of the student activity. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.
  • Page 3 contains a link to the introductory Google Slide Presentation covering homologous, analogous, and vestigial structures with pictures and descriptions.

NGSSMS-LS4-2
Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships. Emphasis is on explanations of the evolutionary relationships among organisms in terms of similarity or differences of the gross appearance of anatomical structures.
NGSSMS-LS4-1
Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past. Emphasis is on finding patterns of changes in the level of complexity of anatomical structures in organisms and the chronological order of fossil appearance in the rock layers. Assessment does not include the names of individual species or geological eras in the fossil record.
