My students need to explore the theory of evolution and witness the process through simulations. Evolution is a difficult concept to grasp and this Inquiry Investigation on the Darwinian Theory will help them with their understanding.
My students are the most creative scientists you will ever meet. Not only are they extremely talented painters, dancers, singers, actors and musicians they are also full of questions regarding the nature of science.
They come to class each day ready to dive deeper into the wonderful world of science.
My students work very hard every afternoon in their respective Art Conservatory and they deserve great hands on science investigations every week in class. In supporting my students you are supporting the next generation of world changers.
This hands-on, inquiry-based laboratory activity helps students understand the theory of evolution and witness the process of evolution through simulations. Students use a guided-inquiry technique as they work in groups to simulate natural selection through predation. Using different feeding tools and different-colored prey, students observe the advantages of being better adapted for the habitat. Collected data is analyzed and used to predict what future generations will be like.
The final section allows students to see how different processes affect the evolution of a population of clay animals.
• develop the skills necessary to design and conduct a scientific investigation.
• observe how natural selection affects a population.
• learn how mutations, gene flow, genetic drift, and selective mating affect a population.
• understand how natural selection tends to create a population more adapted for its environment.
