Week 29 Evolution of Species’

April 5 2015
Honors 6th period students must have the topic and outline with at least 3 sources they are going to be using by the time we come back .. As in that Monday … This is a 100 points and is a zero if not completed by the beginning of the period today…
QFD “When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’”– Sydney Harris

Essential question of the day : describe

why some species survive and some do not in a paragraph as homework

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.

Today’s performance objective : students will take Cornell notes on species and survival mechanisms and create a flow map demonstrating their learning

1) notes on evolution
2) worksheet
3) Google classroom assignment
NOTES –
1) Genetic drift – a change in allele frequency due to random chance
Causes a loss of diversity
Affects small populations.. leads to a bottleneck ( drastic reduction in the number of species small populations can lead to a new population called the founder affect
2) Gene flow – occurs when populations join new populations and reproduce and increases the chances of a different species evolving ( liger) (Mule) less likely a species will be able to adapt or reproduce
3) Mutations – leads to genetic variation needed for evolution to occur
4) Sexual Selection selects traits to improve the species and for mating success’
5) Natural Selection selects traits most advantageous for survival
***Mechanisms of change – (mutations, Migration, genetic drift and natural selection)
6) co-evolution is used to describe cases where two (or more) species reciprocally affect each other’s evolution. Co-evolution is likely to happen when different species have close ecological interactions with one another. These ecological relationships include:
Predator/prey and parasite/host
Competitive species
Mutualistic species

QFD “Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.”

Essential question of the day : how does genetic drift lead to geographic isolation? How does it lead to biodiversity

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.

Today’s performance objective : students will finish their Webquest and turn in answers on a separate sheet of paper (Google classroom)

QFD “There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, end

Essential question of the day: students will analyze questions concerning variation, mutation, genetic drift,isolation, and 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.

Today’s performance objective : students will demonstrate an understanding of survival by achieving 70 percent or greater on a quiz
1) quiz Google forms log in and quiz is located on this site below

QFD “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
– Will Rogers

Essential question of the day : describe and differentiate between the most important factors of a species survival by analyzing data

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.

Today’s performance objective : students will complete a Webquest to demonstrate their knowledge of the objective
1) Webquest</a

Today's performance objective : students will be assigned a topic to research and display on butcher paper in groups of 3 describing one aspect of survival

1) Group activity on survival (2-3) students
A) Students will explain the topic of evolution they are assigned – definition
B) Students will draw a picture that explains their topic
C) Students will provide 3 questions to ask the class about their topic( You have to use all three levels of questions)
D) Write the answers to the questions on the back of your poster with your name
E) Students will present their posters to class on Friday

Co-evolution… Genetic drift…. Mutations …. Natural selection … Selective breeding … Gene flow … Competition for resources ….

Essential question of the day : how do species change w time

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.

Today's performance objective : students will complete a lab that demonstrates survival of the fittest

  1. Hello, I was wondering if there is any other homework I can catch up on others than that packet on Google classroom.

    • Yes. You need to have your outline and 3 citations and a an opening paragraph by Friday done for your research paper , Hiw long will u be out for?

  2. BORDEN! I need help. I can’t come up with any level two or three questions for natural selection. Pleaseeee heelpppp meee.

    • Really, sat night we are going to talk about natural selection lol
      Not that difficult … Compare and contrast beak lengths of finches discovered by Charles Darwin to their food sources and surroundings and habitat. . ? Evaluate the pictures on this poster about beak lengths, and predict food sources each of these species of finches
      (Draw image of darwins finches on poster)
