Learning target : Students will finish that demonstrates information about lines of evidence of evolution

1) draw a model of : common ancestors,homologous structures, embryo logic evidence, DNA evidence, and vestigial structures (draw a diagram or picture that describes the evidence for evolution, and then write a 1-2 paragraphs about why scientists believe this proves the theory of evolution)
2) watch videos at home about the other types of evidence
