2015 revision of Evolution by Natural Selection

This hands-on, minds-on activity has been substantially revised to implement Modeling Instruction; specifically students develop and revise a mental model of the process of natural selection based on analyzing specific examples and a simulation. Our goal is to actively engage students in developing a scientifically accurate understanding of natural selection by a sequence of increasingly sophisticated analyses. We have revised and reorganized the questions in the Student Handout and we have added analysis of evidence for natural selection in the peppered moth in order to help students consolidate a scientifically accurate understanding of natural selection.
