A Peek at the Past: Gradualism vs. Punctuated Equilibria
Students consider two sets of simulated fossils (caminalcules) that are provided as cutouts. They arrange them on two time scales. One set produces a visual example of gradualism, the other shows punctuated equilibria.

Worksheet: The Movement of Tectonic Plates
A colorful wedge of Earth, map of tectonic plates, and numbered facts about Earth structure fill the first two pages of this resource. After reading and absorbing the information, geologists get into groups and make clay models to demonstrate faulting and folding of Earth's crust.

Geography Skills and Your Town
Primaries are introduced to geography and how it is useful. They view photos of different places in the US, comparing them to their own region, explore maps and landscapes, and more. As a culminating activity, have small groups plan a skit, or design a booklet or other presentation about the town that they live in.

How Diverse is That?
Compare various types of biological diversity in a coral reef and calculate a numeric indicator that describes the diversity found in coral communities. Your class can work in groups to look at the abundance and distribution data of species in two communities.

Investigating Our Past: Where Did Humans Come From?
Investigate the theories of human evolution. For this research based lesson, learners research and discuss how geographic isolation, interbreeding, generalization, and specialization are factors in the history of humans. Groups work together to present their research.

Adaptation Investigation - Extreme Beaks
Find photos of bird beaks or show a prepared four slide PowerPoint, "Extreme Beaks" to introduce your class to this special animal adaptation. Provide them with a data table and supplies to try gathering food with tools that each represent a different style of beak.

Evolution of Populations
The change in genetic makeup of a species over time is explored in this PowerPoint. Facts around parent populations, the Hardy Weinberg principle, and selection under different circumstances contributing to an overall change in genetic make-up are presented.

Anolis Lizards of the Greater Antilles
Young scholars "take a trip" to the Greater Antilles to observethe Anolis lizards. They study the body structures and habitat of different species, then plot this data on a map to look for patterns in their distribution. From the patterns they observe, students
