Grades 9–12. Give your class an opportunity to investigate animal behavior firsthand. Students become behavioral analysts as they study isopods (pill or sow bugs) and their behavior in a choice chamber. Students propose explanations for the isopods’ behavior; make predictions about factors affecting animal behavior; and form connections between behavior and natural selection. After making observations over time, students design their own experiments by adjusting environmental conditions to determine the isopods’ preferred habitats. Helps you teach the cross-cutting concepts of Cause and Effect and Stability and Change. Kit contains materials for 30 students working in groups of 3.
