This bundle covers concepts in Evolution and Population genetics. There are two power points and two graphic organizers. It could take up to a week to cover.
Detailed Evolution Bundle with historical review of Darwin's journey and development of the principle of natural selection. Discussion of the Galapagos Island, Darwin's Finches and the Galapagos turtles. the natural selection process in giraffes is also covered. The five evidences of evolution; DNA comparisons, embryology, comparative anatomy, fossil record and bio-geography is presented to students.
The power point and graphic organizer foldable can be taught separately or simultaneously with areas for students to take notes. A teacher key is included for an idea of what students should record.
The graphic organizer fold-out foldable has instructions of how to glue and can easily fit into a composition notebook or spiral ring notebook.
POPULATION GENETICS BUNDLE
The population genetics power point covers the mechanisms of how species evolve over time. It begins with an overview of Hardy-Weinberg and then delves into genetic flow, genetic drift, bottleneck effect, founder's effect, the types of selection, the types of isolation and the types of speciation.
The power point is filled with examples of the mechanisms and pictures, graphs and charts to help emphasize the concepts.
The population genetics graphic organizer prompts students to write about the mechanisms of how species evolve over time. It has compartments for Hardy-Weinberg and then delves into genetic flow, genetic drift, bottleneck effect, founder's effect, the types of selection, the types of isolation and the types of speciation.
There are visual prompts to help students remember the differences between the topics. Easily fits into a composition notebook or spiral ring notebook. Works great with interactive notebooks. A detailed teacher's key is included.
The concepts are heavy within population genetics so I would advise to chunk the information up into segments instead of teaching them all the way through in one day.
