Fundamentals of Evolution

  Grades 5-6
   
  Variation
  As a class, examine a variety of canine species.
  Each student selects a different species on which to focus.
  Identify characteristics specific to a given species (physical traits, social tendencies dietary needs, vulnerabilities).
   
  Adaptation
  Locate habitat/origin of species being studied.
  Identify characteristics that would help the species to survive in that environment.
  Explain how/why such adaptations are necessary for survival.
  Identify characteristics that would make the species vulnerable in a different type of environment.
   
  Natural Selection
  Explain why certain species would survive over others in a particular environment.
  Hypothesize how species would fare if dramatic changes occurred in the environment (warming, cooling, drought, excess rain/snow)
