Students will be challenged, will learn, and will have a blast in this lab that brings evolution to life!
In this design challenge lab, students will use knowledge learned about evolution to build an animal that is best suited to live in a given environment. Students are grouped into the different islands that Darwin visited during his journey aboard the Beagle. At each island, students will find environmental and climate information, along with the type of animal they must make. All animals will have a moving part and must include a defense mechanism against the predator known on that island.
