Molecular Sequences & Primate Evolution: Amino Acids, Hemoglobins in EvolutionLesson Planet
10th - 12th
Students compare differences in amino acids in the beta hemoglobin from representative primates, complete a matrix of those differences, and from these data, construct and interpret cladograms as they reflect relationships and timing of...
Your Place in the Primate Family TreeLesson Planet
12 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Your family get-togethers are about to become more interesting! A video lesson in the PBS Eons series describes the primate family tree that leads to the one and only—homo sapiens. Discover the fossil evidence that leads scientists to...
PRIMATE CLASSIFICATION: Evolution, Cladograms,Lesson Planet
7th - 10th
Students transfer examples (names) of primates from their location in an outline hierarchy of primate groups into a set of nested boxes reflecting that same hierarchy. A cladogram can then be drawn illustrating how these groups are...
Where Do We Come From? An Introduction to Primate BiologyLesson Planet
Seventh graders explore skeletal biology. Through a discussion and video observation, 7th graders investigate how the anatomy is adapted to the environment. Students study primates and explore their characteristics and behaviors.
What Happened to the World's Greatest Ape?Lesson Planet
7 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Gigantopithecus was the greatest of the great apes! Whatever became of them? Take a journey to Asia and explore the forests and grasslands that were once home to the large primate using a video from an extentsive biology playlist....
Molecular Biology and Primate PhylogenicsLesson Planet
10th - 12th
By counting differences in amino acids, biology stars examine the relationships between different primates. With information gleaned, they map out a phylogenic tree and discover common ancestry. You will need to create printable versions...
Molecular Biology and Primate PhylogeneticsLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Pairs of high school biologists compare amino acid differences in the beta hemoglobin of different primates. They use the information collected to construct a phylogenic tree. Follow-up discussion questions are provided. This is a...
