Don't let students close their books until they complete this study guide cloze and word search puzzle. These worksheets help students review with a fill-in-the-blank on evidence supports the action of evolution, the role of genetics in mutation, homologous body parts and biodiversity of niches. The word search reviews 22 key vocabulary words on evolution and extinction. It is in Microsoft Word .doc form so that Ts can customize the cloze to fit the needs of their Ss.
This study guide cloze and word search puzzle is classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science.
Students Will Be Able To (SWBAT)
SC.7.L.15.1 Recognize that fossil evidence is consistent with the scientific theory of evolution that living things evolved from earlier species.
SC.7.L.15.2 Explore the scientific theory of evolution by recognizing and explaining ways in which genetic variation and environmental factors contribute to evolution by natural selection and diversity of organisms.
SC.7.L.15.3 Explore the scientific theory of evolution by relating how the inability of a species to adapt within a changing environment may contribute to the extinction of that species.
SC.7.L.16.1 Understand and explain that every organism requires a set of instructions that specifies its traits, that this hereditary information (DNA) contains genes located in the chromosomes of each cell, and that heredity is the passage of these instructions from one generation to another.
SC.912.L.15.1 Explain how the scientific theory of evolution is supported by the fossil record, comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, biogeography, molecular biology, and observed evolutionary change.
SC.912.L.15.14 Discuss mechanisms of evolutionary change other than natural selection such as genetic drift and gene flow.
