Product Description
An activity for Evolution and Natural Selection units. Illustrates the difference between Darwin's and Lamarck's theories of evolution.
After analyzing a brief text about Darwin and Lamarck, students are asked to create a paper advertisement for a "Lamarckian Product." These "too-good-to-be-true" products symbolize an acquired characteristic for an organism and claim to increase the organism's ability to survive or reproduce. The "infomercial" style of this activity will help students remember that Larmarcks theories were widely discredited and that acquired traits cannot be passed on to the next generation.
