Connecting Concepts:Natural Selection 1: Defining Natural Selection

Logo for Connecting Concepts:Natural Selection 1: Defining Natural Selection
Students follow Darwin on a virtual field trip around the world in order to debunk three common misconceptions about natural selection. Students will: 1) complete interactive explorations of each misconception and explain that: a) fitness involves survival and reproduction, not just survival, b) selection is not random, and c) populations, not individuals, evolve; and 2) construct a definition of natural selection.

Part one of three interactive exercises that investigate natural selection. Uses Darwins work creatively to demonstrate concepts. This concept is essential in biology.  Very well written and well organized. Requires students to draw conclusions from information presennted.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Flash player
