Inquiries in Science®: Simulating the Darwinian Theory

$175.00 - $240.00

Grades 9–12. Allow students to explore the theory of evolution and witness the process through simulations. Students use a guided-inquiry technique as they work in groups to simulate natural selection through predation. Experiments address natural selection, variety within species, overpopulation, genetic variability, and gene pools. Kit materials are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4. Kit refill replenishes the kit's consumable items.

Description

  • Observe how natural selection affects a population
  • Learn that mutations, gene flow, genetic drift, and selective mating affect a population
  • Provide cross-curricular integrations such as math and graphing
