PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet is intended to be used after an introduction to natural selection. Students are instructed to search the Internet for information about Naked Mole Rats (NMRs). They are asked to identify a minimum of seven specific evolutionary adaptations that enable individual NMRs to survive in their environment. The table provided helps students organize the information to best understand the benefit each adaptation confers to an individual NMR's survival as well as the consequences to individuals that lack the adaptation. Naked Mole Rats are weird and engaging - with an abundace of structural, behavioral, and physiological adaptations - a student favorite. Due to the abundance of NMR adaptations, students are likely to select a different set of adaptations than their classmates so it's nice to give students the opportunity to share their findings in class. This can be followed up with a related essay or a discussion about selection pressures or modes of selection.
