Evolution: Evolving Bodies, Evolving Switches

We have entered the Math EOC testing period (Geometry today, Algebra tomorrow).  Students attend periods 1-3 today and 4-6 tomorrow afternoon, following the SBAC testing bell schedule.

Today, students watched the HHMI Biointeractive video titled Evolving Bodies, Evolving Switches (watch below).  The video explains how the stickleback fish has evolved and adapted to its environment, and shows how scientists are using genetics to further understanding of evolution as well as developmental biology.  After watching the video, students completed a worksheet to reinforce and extend their learning.
