QFD: Enslave the liberty of but one human being and the liberties of the world are put in peril. ~William Lloyd Garrison
Essential question of the Day : Name and describe 3 different types of evidence of evolution
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-1 Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.
Learning target : Students will take notes and view a clip that reveals information about lines of evidence of evolution and will complete homework of vocabulary terms listed to evolution
1) video clip on evidence
2) notes

HW : vocabulary terms

QFD: Prejudice is the child of ignorance. ~W
Essential question of the day : Analyze various embryos and why scientists believe this is proof of evolution
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-1 Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.
Learning target : Students will create a Model that reveals information about lines of evidence of evolution by the end of the period
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

In your booklet – Evolution Evidence

Includes a picture of a type of evolutionary evidence and explains the evidence in 1-2 paragraphs. Under the picture and description, on the back page create 3 questions at levels 1,2,3 and answer them

  1. fossil evidence ( fossil record)
  2. Embryological evidence
  3. Bio-geography
  4. Homologous Structures
  5. DNA Genetic information

Due by next monday

QFD: Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason. ~Abraham Joshua Heschel
Essential question of the Day : why are amino acid sequences proof of common ancestors ?
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-1 Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.
Learning target : Students will finish that demonstrates information about lines of evidence of evolution
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: “The past is a ghost, the future a dream. All we ever have is now.” -Bill Cosby
Essential question of the Day : hypothesize which aspect of evolution is most important to prove the theory
This weeks learning objective : HS LS 4-1 Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.
Learning target : Students will complete a test that reveals information about lines of evidence of evolution and the geologic time scale by the end of the period
1) quiz due
2) watch natural selection and Charles Darwin video

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?

  1. did we have any homework today

    • Yes , it is to make sure you upload a google doc with your personality color on it through google classroom
