This crossword puzzle is an excellent review of challenging vocabulary related to natural selection and evolution. Students need practice with identifying the key vocab, plus a crossword provides a round of practice with spelling! Correct spelling can be tough with challenging academic vocabulary!
This crossword focuses in on the following vocabulary, which may be most suitable for an AP Biology, advanced/honors, or introductory college biology course:
acquired trait, adaptation, adaptive evolution, analogous, artificial selection, balancing selection, biogeography, convergent evolution, endemic, evolutionary tree, heritable trait, homologous structures, homology, natural selection, Pangaea, phylogeny, phylogenetic tree, population, relative fitness, variation, vestigial structure
Crosswords can be used as individual practice at home, bellringer or closure work, or even turned into a review game race (ex. students on a team must take turns writing in a word - fastest team wins!).
Answer key included.
