As Darwin traveled around the Galapagos Islands, he noticed that the tortoises on each island were slightly different, especially evident by the length of their neck. During this activity, students will learn about the different types of tortoises, figure out which tortoise lives on which island, and answer questions based on a reading reference sheet. This is a great activity to do as you present to students Darwin's evidence for evolution.
