This set of 35 EDITABLE task cards cover: natural selection, types of selection, adaptations, favorable traits, and evidence for evolution. They can be used as a PPT review for the whole class, flash cards for struggling students, a formative assessment, or you can print them out and use them as stations. My students find this so much more engaging than another review worksheet! Answer key cards are included.

I have uploaded this in a .pptx format, so you can modify and differentiate for your classroom and students' needs. Enjoy!
NGSS HS-LS4-2 Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment.
NGSS HS-LS4-4 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
NGSS HS-LS4-3 Apply concepts of statistics and probability to support explanations that organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase in proportion to organisms lacking this trait.
NGSS HS-LS4-1 Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.
