Product Description
This product is a lab simulation on natural selection where students will become fictional characters with a specific set of traits (32 different trait cards). They will be lead through a whole class simulation presentation where they will read and decide whether or not they will survive environmental pressures to then reproduce and pass on their favorable traits to their offspring. There are two sets of the environmental pressures for the lab simulation. This product includes a handout (colored/black and white) with a chart for students to graphically organize themselves and think through this engaging activity! This product is part of my Evolution and Geologic Time Scale Unit Bundle.

This lab simulation reviews the following topics:
• Natural Selection
• Adaptations
• Survival of the Fittest
• Charles Darwin
• Inherited Variation
• Overproduction
• Struggle to Survive
• Successful Reproduction
