This lesson is based on a short article which offers a classroom strategy to help students resolve the common confusion of the mechanism for evolution due to Lamarck with Darwinian natural selection. Students will learn that: evolution proceeds by the process of variation, a genetically random process, and selection, an environmentally driven non-random process; organisms do not get what they need ...

This lesson provides a real-sense time scale experience to better visualize the vast extent of geological time. Using familiar linear analogs, students come to realize that the five main classes of vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds) each emerged several tens of millions of years apart, over the past 500 million years. Students also discover when the earliest fossils of each ... Full description.
