Product Description
In this hands-on, project based lab activity, students simulate the natural selection of peppered moths on different backgrounds using newspaper, white paper, hole punches, and forceps.

They start with defining some key terms, then going through a procedure.

Students will grab the circles like a bird and then track the population fluctuations through five generations of moths.

At the end of the lab, they will create a few line graphs to show the population changes, and then answer questions about the changes and what they mean.

There is a final graphing assignment that could be used as an extension activity.

There is no answer key provided, but the answers will be common sense for anyone who teaches Biology.
