Laboratory activities encourage evolutionary biology scholars to consider homologous structures as evidence of common ancestry. They learn how to formulate phylogenic trees and that environment influences to genetic variation. Activities are pertinent to high school biology courses and in this resource they are explained in detail for your convenience.
Meteorology majors will be enriched by this presentation on the movement of dust throughout our world atmosphere. They will examine graphs of the spatial and chemical patterns of the dust suspended over North America and then extend the study to other continents. The background knowledge required for understanding this presentation makes it most appropriate for advanced environmental science learners or college courses. It is top-notch in appearance and information content!
Using origami paper birds, your biology class will experiment with mutations and natural selection to determine wing position, length, and width. It would be helpful to provide a worksheet to go with the activity that includes a procedure for creating the birds and for the natural selection exercise. Use this memorable simulation to enhance your evolution curriculum.
