This assignment worksheet instructs students to design organisms with favorable and unfavorable mutations for their environment. Students must draw the organisms and explain using given terms like variation, competition, selection, reproduce, selected FOR, and selected AGAINST. This pushes students to think about how mutations lead to changes in populations.
