Animal Ancestry and Adaptations – A Brief Overview of Our Unit

The overarching concept this unit is the identification of patterns in relation to cause and effect.

We will be studying:

  • Fossil Records – existence, diversity, extinction, and changes of many life forms throughout the history of the Earth
  • Natural Selection – how it leads to the predominance of certain traits in a population, and the suppression of others
  • Adaptation – species change overtime in response to changes in environmental conditions

The goal is to complete the unit right before Week Without Walls, February 11th.

Articles, links and videos will be posted to support the students’  learning in the near future.
