Product Description
This reading discusses how a Russian experiment in the 1950s selectively bred (artificial selection) for domestication in foxes. These Russians only selected the most amiable foxes for breeding. Over time, this not only resulted in tame foxes in only a handful of generations, but also resulted in many other curious changes to the foxes' phenotypes. These phenotypic changes included floppy ears, new colors, and behaviors such as tail wagging.

This article informs the students about these curious changes, explains the process, and even helps them learn new vocabulary words! It takes students around five minutes to read. You can then pair this reading either with questions or a quizizz game reviewing the how and why this process occurred.
