  • What did I learn?

  • Notes to myself: Reflection AQ #4

Activity 95 hiding in the background


Can you think of an animal that is difficult to find because it blends into it surroundings?

Challenge: What factors effect natural selection?

Background: Scenario of worms on TG F-77

Vocabulary: adaption, competition, natural selection, variation

Procedure: Do as a class

Set up data table

Activity 95: Hiding in the Background

Activity 95 hiding in the background1

Activity 95: Hiding in the background

  • Data:Set up data table

  • Do math as a class

  • Ratio

  • Conclusion: What does the data show?

  • AQ # 3

  • What did I learn? Compare change in population to adaption.

  • Notes to myself:

Activity 96 battling beaks


What is natural selection?

Give evidence.
