Description

A 4-page worksheet product designed to cover the five major categories of evidence for evolution for an upper middle school or lower high school biology course. Topics include: biogeography, fossil record, comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, and molecular biology.

Contents:

Pages 1-3 - Reading:

  • Review of Darwin’s theory of natural selection
  • Lines of evidence that were available and not available to Darwin
  • Biogeography (closely related species in nearby environments, etc.)
  • Fossils (carbon dating, age of the earth, missing links, etc.)
  • Comparative Anatomy (homologous, analogous, & vestigial structures)
  • Comparative Embryology (embryonic similarities in different species)
  • Genetics and Molecular Biology (common cell structures, DNA code, etc.)

Page 4 - Review Questions:

  • A one page review exercise where students complete short answer questions and summary tables to review the material

Page 5 - Answer Key:

  • Color coded answer key for all review questions

Standards

NGSSMS-LS4-2
Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships. Emphasis is on explanations of the evolutionary relationships among organisms in terms of similarity or differences of the gross appearance of anatomical structures.
NGSSHS-LS4-1
Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence. Emphasis is on a conceptual understanding of the role each line of evidence has relating to common ancestry and biological evolution. Examples of evidence could include similarities in DNA sequences, anatomical structures, and order of appearance of structures in embryological development.
NGSSMS-LS4-1
Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past. Emphasis is on finding patterns of changes in the level of complexity of anatomical structures in organisms and the chronological order of fossil appearance in the rock layers. Assessment does not include the names of individual species or geological eras in the fossil record.
NGSSMS-LS4-3
Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy. Emphasis is on inferring general patterns of relatedness among embryos of different organisms by comparing the macroscopic appearance of diagrams or pictures. Assessment of comparisons is limited to gross appearance of anatomical structures in embryological development.
