This Using DNA to Explore Lizard Phylogeny activity & project also includes:
In a fun and interactive two-day lesson, learners sort anole lizard pictures by appearance. Next, they watch a video about the anoles and re-sort based on the information in the video. In addition to physical characteristics, budding biologists look for DNA differences between the anoles and create an evolutionary family tree.
- Variety of activities will engage several learning styles
- Examine multiple lines of evidence for evolution and adaptation of anoles
- Great information for both learners and teacher
- Some activities may need to be modified for younger classes
