Product Description
This lesson is compatible with the Middle School Next Generation Science Standards* MS-LS4-2 where the students are asked to “[a]pply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships” and MS-LS4-3 where the students are asked to “[a]nalyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy.”
