Are you teaching evolution and how speciation occurs? Use this skittles lab to have your students model how species separate (in this case, through geographic and ecological isolation.) It's fun and almost no prep!

Materials needed per group: Dixie cup, skittles, and a paper towel.

Included in your purchase is BOTH a pdf printable version and an alternate Google slide version- great for lab make-ups!
