  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This resource includes a project description and rubric for a research project on the evidence for evolution.

Students are instructed to make 2 slides on each topic. One slide describing what this topic is, and a second slide discussing how this topic contributes to the Theory of Evolution.

Topics covered include:

  • Fossils
  • Homologous Structures
  • Analogous Structures
  • Vestigial Structures
  • Embryology
  • DNA Evidence

Additionally, students are instructed to submit their research notes and cite their sources on the final slide of their presentation.

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.
NGSSMS-LS4-3
Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy. Emphasis is on inferring general patterns of relatedness among embryos of different organisms by comparing the macroscopic appearance of diagrams or pictures. Assessment of comparisons is limited to gross appearance of anatomical structures in embryological development.
