    Worksheet
    Students will be able to explain the modern theory of evolution, including: natural selection, the evolution of populations, fossils, Darwin's finches, gene pools, evidence and more important concepts. Hand out this worksheet before introducing evolution. Students are to fill in this worksheet while you teach. Students then use this worksheet as a central place to study from to prepare for a test or quiz.

    Project
    Students pretend to evolve a dinosaur using Darwin's principles of evolution and watch how the dinosaur adapts to an environmental change. This is a very comprehensive project including natural selection, adaptations, chromosome and point mutations, gene pools, isolation, Mendel genetics, protein synthesis, fossils, ecology, competition,and speciation.
