Have fun and build classroom culture while reviewing the evidence for evolution with this “Place your bets” activity. First, students will answer true/false questions about the four main types of evidence for evolution (fossil record, DNA, vestigial structures, and comparing skeletal structures). After they answer each question, students get to “bet” between $5 and $35 on each answer (the more confident they are in their answer, the more they should bet). Even though no actual money will be used, it still means students are totally engaged when you review the correct answers! This great for review, formative assessment, and correcting misconceptions.
Students will hardly realize they are learning with this lively activity.Worksheet and teacher key are included.
