    Multimedia
    Students change the beak size and precipitation parameters and watch how populations of finches survive and thrive or die off based upon their adaptations. Good animation for students to see how natural selection works with populations.

    Experiment
    The amino acid sequences in cytochrome-c are used to compare the degree of relationship between several different animals. Students also use the data to compare to a cladogram of anatomical features for those animals.

    Activity
    Students are taken on an imaginary fossil hunt. Following a script read by the teacher, students "find" (remove from envelope) paper "fossils" of some unknown creature, only a few at a time. Each time, they attempt to reconstruct the creature, and each time their interpretation tends to change as new pieces are "found". This lesson is great for students to understand that science is tentative and as new evidence is revealed, ideas may change.
