Microevolution

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
If some genes were exposed to microwaves, would that cause microevolution? In the video, scholars learn about microevolution or any change in the allele frequency of a population. The instructor explains the five ways microevolution...

AP: Chapter 24: The Origin of Species

For Students 9th - Higher Ed
AP biology buffs define vocabulary terms and answer critical-thinking questions about evolutionary trends. They compare macroevolution to microevolution, differentiate ploidy possibilities, explain isolation barriers, and more....

Population Genetics

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Genetic variation shows the health of a population, yet cheetahs show very little variation over that last 10,000 years. Scholars learn the importance of genetic variation in populations after viewing an informative presentation. It...

AP: Chapter 23: The Evolution of Populations

For Students 10th - Higher Ed
How and why do populations change over time? AP biology aces explore this question by completing this assignment. They write the answers to 21 questions regarding population genetics, stability, genetic drift, polymorphism, and selection.

Evolution of Populations

For Teachers 8th - 12th
The change in genetic makeup of a species over time is explored in this PowerPoint.  Facts around parent populations, the Hardy Weinberg principle, and selection under different circumstances contributing to an overall change in genetic...

Evolution of the Virus: Teaching Macroevolution Through Microevolution

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Students describe the anatomy of a virus. In this biology instructional activity, students compare and contrast the characteristics of bacteria and viruses. They discover the genetic adaptations of viruses over time.

Spork and Beans

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Students examine natural selection, how it works and how it can cause microevolution.  In this evolution lesson students complete a lab activity that shows the effects that natural selection has on organisms.

Evolution - The Nature of Change and Variation

For Teachers 9th - 12th
The objective of this set of slides is to present four types of evidence for evolution: the fossil record, embryology, molecular biology, and comparative anatomy. Each facet of the argument is explored. This can be used in a high school...

Stickleback Evolution

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
About 70 percent of the genes of the stickleback fish are the same as humans. In the video, scholars further explore the stickleback fish and its history, from being removed from Loberg Lake to their change and comeback. Over time, these...

Population Genetics

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Population genetics deals with genetic differences within and between populations. The video explains why this is the lowest level of evolution. Then it discusses mutations, environmental factors, genetic recombination, and random gamete...

Pre-Activity Worksheet: Natural Selection

For Teachers 9th - Higher Ed
Although the instructions include reading from a specific textbook, the tasks are appropriate for any unit dealing with how genotype frequency changes over time. Junior biologists define five vocabulary terms and then answer five...

Evolution and Theory

For Students 9th - 11th
Students discuss Darwin's theory of evolution. In this biology lesson, students investigate what influenced Darwin's thinking as it relates to Evolution. They discuss pros and cons of Natural Selection.
