Essential question of the Day : Analyze why Charles Darwin’s discoveries were significant to the theory of evolution
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-3 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
Learning target : Students will take notes and view a clip that reveals information about Charles Darwin and his discoveries of evolution and will complete homework of vocabulary terms listed to evolution

QFD: Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there’s not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago.”
Essential question of the day : Analyze various adaptations that organisms have and why scientists believe this is proof of evolution
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-3 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.

Learning target : Students will create a Model that reveals information about lines of evidence of evolution by the end of the period
1) web quest mimicry , camouflage, and adaptations
2) watch videos at home about the other types of evidence
Hw : finish Webquest
March 2 2016
QFD: There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth… not going all the way, and not starting.”
Essential question of the Day : Name and describe 3 ways in which some organisms have adapted to their environment and why these changes are significant for survival
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-3 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.

Learning target : Students will complete a drawing that illustrates the findings of Charles Darwin , adaptation, and an example of survival of the fittest
1) finish posters and place on wall , go comment on another groups poster of which u think is important , and any info that you disagree with
2) gallery walk

QFD: Spring is the time of plans and projects
Essential question of the Day : hypothesize which aspect of evolution ate most important to prove the theory of evolution
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-3 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.

Learning target : Students will complete a test that reveals information about charles Darwin , and adaptations regarding the theory of evolution by the end of the period

QFD: It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart. – Rainer Maria Rilke
Essential question of the day : What adaptations does a squid possess?
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-3 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
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 lab by dissecting a squid by the end of the period
1) Squid dissection
2) pairs handout
