Adaptation by Natural selection – Interactive educational

Adaptation by Natural selection – Interactive educational

Explains how evolution is caused by the changes that occur in populations of organisms across generations. General objectives:
  • To provide students with the opportunity to discover the process of adaptation by natural selection for themselves Specific:
  • Understanding the process of natural selection that allows populations to adapt to the environment. This involves understanding the three conditions necessary for natural selection to work.
  • Understanding that the effects of mutations depend on environmental conditions: a mutation is not a priori adaptive (good) or deleterious (bad); this depends on the environment they are in.
  • Understanding the importance of variability: if there is no variability, populations will become extinct because it is not possible for them to adapt to change.
Transversal:
  • Stimulate critical thinking: develop questions and draw conclusions based on observations made.
  • Encourage group work (if appropriate).
