Title: Naturally, I Select You: Tactile Modeling of Natural Selection in the Classroom
Description: In terms of life science content, evolution is essentially where genetics meets ecology. In this introduction to evolution, students will take on the role of both research biologists and predators to simulate how environmental conditions affect and change a population of model frogs and traits. Students will encounter the impacts of mutations and changes to the environment affecting the survival as well. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
