Organisms with favorable genetic variations will tend to survive and breed successfully, fueling evolution.
In this lab activity, students will simulate evolution, which takes place over many years in one class period. They will observe how organisms with favorable genetic variations tend to survive and pass on traits to their offspring using materials you can acquire cheaply.

I do this lab activity to introduce my evolution unit in Biology.
