High interest and thought-provoking - this is a fun NGSS resource!
Kids enjoy it, and teachers appreciate the deeper level analysis questions.
Related NGSS standards: MS-LS4-2, MS-LS4-3, HS-LS4-1, HS-LS4-3
Students read a 2-page humorous and high-interest reading about vestigial structures in their own body. As they read, they complete an activity sheet, which includes a graphic organizer about each trait and its prior purpose and 6 thought-provoking analysis questions. The target audience is middle school, but it is perfectly suited to compliment the high school standards HS-LS4-2 and HS-LS4-3, as well.
We also have activities for Homologous Structures, Embryological Evidence and Molecular Evidence.
