Create a Critter!

Create a Critter!
Product Description
Help your students learn about evolution, adaptations, and natural selection with this engaging activity! In Parts 1 and 2 students will examine how environmental pressures affect the evolution of an organism by designing an environment and then creating a critter that is well adapted to that environment. In Part 3 of this activity, students can explore how change within their environment would affect the evolution or possible extinction of their organism. Finally, in Part 4, your students can learn about relationships between critters by building a cladogram from the information generated in Parts 1, 2, and 3.

Includes a short writing assignment to help encourage writing across the curriculum.

This activity is editable and can be modified for almost any classroom level. Skip part 4 if you are not covering cladograms. Skip part 1 and simply assign an environment if you need to save time. Skip the artistic and written bits if you just want a bare bones activity covering adaptations. The amount of time this activity takes is up to you and your schedule.

Includes graphic organizers and tables to help students keep the information straight.

Can be easily uploaded to Google Drive if you are in a 1:1 environment or have access to computers.
