Project on geographic isolation, speciation, and natural selection that can be completed in 1-2 class periods. Project is intended for a 9th grade biology class. Students create their own species and then explain how the species evolved into new
Worksheet that I made in order to review for a unit test on evolution. The worksheet includes homologous & analogous structures, convergent & divergent evolution, cladograms, natural selection, adaptation & acclimation, gene flow,
Because food webs are typically an elementary/middle school topic, I created this higher level assignment for use with my 9th grade biology class. The assignment asks students to randomly select an animal that they have never heard of before,
Introduce your students to taxonomy and classification with this grouping activity. Have students group aliens based on their characteristics and then determine names for each group. This activity works really well as an intro activity. It is very
Worksheet to practice calculating allele and phenotype frequencies for microevolution. I do not have an answer key included, but feel free to email me or comment below if you want an answer key and I'll add one on!
Stations that review allele & phenotype frequency, patterns of natural selection (stabilizing, disruptive, and directional) as well as methods of speciation (bottleneck, gene flow, founder effect, etc)
