Product Description
**All resources are also linked to the "Teacher Notes" page which appears first, but most have been included individually in the zipped file for your convenience. They were originally created in GoogleDocs and will probably be formatted best if opened there.

My students loved this, and I tweaked it to make sure it runs smoothly and effectively in your classroom too!

This is a short project written for 7th grade students that encapsulates major topics learned throughout a biology course. It highlights the work of the Pfennig labs at UNC-CH and was produced in partnership with many researchers in the lab. It would be best implemented toward the end of the course as an extension activity (great for post-exam time), as it is a case study that spans multiple topics covered.

Students will receive a toad and do research (with provided material supplements) to construct a case file that addresses taxonomy, phylogeny, DNA sequencing, habitat, mate selection, scientific processes, and the connection between genetics and the environment.

There are 20 distinct (but all female) toads in this project, but several students can study the same toad (and still work independently and have their own project).

This is designed for (3) 50-minute class periods. Students will need a device to read a QR code and a computer/iPad for some linked info in their packets. All links in this document should direct your to the appropriate Google Doc. You can “make a copy” if you would like to edit/change anything.
