Learning Exercise

Evolution and Genetics concept mapping

The students will construct a concept map which indicates the most important elements of evolution. They should include, but are not limited to, the structure of DNA being related to the genetic inheritance, gene variation, natural selection, and mutations.
Course: High School/middle school General Biology

DNA from the Beginning is an animated tutorial on DNA, genes and heredity. The science behind each concept is explained... see more



Evolution involving: dna structure, gene variation, natural selection, mutations

Learning Objectives

The student will be able to: 1) explain how eveolution relates to genetics, 2) define natural selection and its function 3) explain how DNA as a whole (structure, function) is related to evolution, 4) explain how mutations effect evolution
