Natural Selection and Evolution of Rock Pocket Mouse Populations

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Can evolution repeat itself? Scholars analyze amino acid data in two separate populations of mice. They learn that evolution repeats itself, but natural selection prefers some mutations over others in different environments. Analysis...

Population Genetics

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Genetic variation shows the health of a population, yet cheetahs show very little variation over that last 10,000 years. Scholars learn the importance of genetic variation in populations after viewing an informative presentation. It...

Zebrafish and Skin Color

For Teachers 9th - Higher Ed Standards
You may not know if that zebrafish in your fish tank is a model citizen—but it is definitely a model organism! What can we learn about ourselves from a tiny zebrafish? Discover more about the polygenic trait of skin color through a...

Genetic Drift

For Students 7th - 12th Standards
Survival is a game of chance, catch my drift? Examine the factors that influence genetic drift with an entertaining video from a large biology playlist. The resource covers the myriad conditions that come into play when a species...

Disruption of Genetic Equilibrium

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Could a population stay the exact same over time with no change in allele frequencies? The video explains the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium theorem and the assumptions it requires. It discusses mutation, migration, gene flow, genetic drift,...

Genetic Drift

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Male northern elephant seals grow to be 13 feet in length and can weigh up to 4,500 pounds. In the video, scholars explore genetic drift in a population through a simulation. The instructor shows allele frequencies changing over time,...

Population Genetics: When Darwin Met Mendel

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Learners explore population genetics, or how populations of species change over time, leading to evolution with a video that brings together the principles of Mendel and Darwin and explains and models the Hardy-Weinberg equation.

Natural Selection - The Mechanism of Evolution

For Teachers 9th - 12th
A sufficient slide show on natural selection is available to use with your biology class. It introduces viewers to foundations of this mechanism of evolutionary change. Notes are provided to support your lecture on genetic variation and...

Genes within Populations

For Students 11th - Higher Ed
Finally, here is a genetics instructional activity that does not include Punnett squares! Designed for a more advanced class, biology learners will compare Lamarck's concept of evolution with Darwin's. They will explore the...

Evolution Study Guide

For Students 7th - 10th
Thirty short-answer questions comprise this detailed review of evolution theory. Many of the questions ask scholars to define vocabulary. Because short answers are required, this worksheet will take some time to complete. You could give...

Hardy-Weinberg Lab Data

For Teachers 9th
The ten slides give multiple examples of Genetic Drift, or cases of particular genetic populations. Each set of data requires an explanation and the allele frequency changes should be easy for your students to calculate.

Evolution of Populations

For Teachers 8th - 12th
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...
Lesson Planet

Genetic Drift

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. They run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their...
