QFD: the world is its own magic.” ― Shunryu Suzuki
?FD : Have you ever created a website before ? Do u remember the one we created at the beginning of the school year and your password?
Learning Objective: Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment
HS-LS2-8.
Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) poster recreation
2) pick an endangered species to study and investigateand add the following :
Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) poster design

2) endangered species project ( individual – all posters should be different)

2) Explains the who what where when and why these species have become endangered include pictures and graphs to emphasize your findings ( at least 1-2 paragraphs per section)

3) create a graph using excel or spreadsheet that demonstrates the decline in the species you have chosen over the last 20 years

QFD : Rain in April is abominable,”Like a slap in the face when you expected a kiss.”
?FD : Describe and analyze the methods scientists use to prove the theory of evolution
Learning Objective: HS 2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.*

LS4.B: Natural Selection

Natural selection occurs only if there is both (1) variation in the genetic information between organisms in a population and (2) variation in the expression of that genetic information—that is, trait variation—that leads to differences in performance among individuals.
The traits that positively affect survival are more likely to be reproduced, and thus are more common in the population.
LS4.C: Adaptation

Natural selection leads to adaptation, that is, to a population dominated by organisms that are anatomically, behaviorally, and physiologically well suited to survive and reproduce in a specific environment. That is, the differential survival and reproduction of organisms in a population that have an advantageous heritable trait leads to an increase in the proportion of individuals in future generations that have the trait and to a decrease in the proportion of individuals that do not.
Adaptation also means that the distribution of traits in a population can change when conditions change.

QFD: don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history. ~Morgan Freeman
Essential question of the day : Who was Charles Darwin and what is his significance to the theory of natural selection
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-2 Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment.
Learning target : Students will complete a webquest that reveals information about lines of evidence of evolution and the geologic time scale by the end of the period
1) size video and questions
Evolve: Size​​Name _______________________________________ Per___

Objective: Students will understand why certain factors influence how animals have changed in size over time.

1. Explain what advantage the pigmy (small) mammoth had over the giant mammoths.
2. Explain why “bugs” at periods in the past could grow so much larger than the “bugs” now.
3. Describe how whales have changed in size over time. Include the theory of why the change occurred.
4. Explain how it is possible for the Sauropods to be so large.
5. Explain why tiny mammals survived when the dinosaurs (and other large animals) became extinct?
6. Explain this theory of why humans have become taller. How is this related to “survival of the fittest”?
7. Summary of main idea: What factors affect the size of animals?
