Every biology teacher has the daunting task of teaching students about the major groups of animals in a very short time. Our students are asked to know all about body plans, behaviors, anatomy, reproduction, etc.. This project from Lab207 will help your students quickly identify evolutionary trends in development between all of the major groups of vertebrates and invertebrates. In addition they are asked to analyze and discuss various trends and connections.
