Some of the best resources for biology teachers are produced by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. (HHMI) The HHMI website features a rich collection of high quality biology education DVDs. One of the best evolution DVDs that I have run across is entitled Evolution: Fossils, Genes, and Mousetraps and it can be obtained free of charge at the HHMI catalog website: http://www.hhmi.org/catalog/main?action=product&itemId=323. This DVD features Dr. Kenneth Miller, Brown University biologist and leading evolution educator. Dr. Miller does such a beautiful job of teaching evolution in this DVD, that if I only had two days in the entire school year to teach evolution, I would show this DVD to my students!
This packet contains the following:
1. Student worksheet to accompany the DVD entitled Evolution: Fossils, Genes, and Mousetraps. Multiple copies of this student worksheet may be reproduced for classroom use.
2. Teacher’s answer key for the student worksheet
