  1. Evolution Jeopardy!

  2. The theory of evolution 100 100 100 100 100 200 200 200 200 200 300 300 300 300 300 400 400 400 400 400 500 500 500 500 500 FINAL

  3. This part of Darwin’s theory of Evolution shows this example: differences for Homo sapiens (humans) can be exact size or shape of body, strength in running, or resistance to disease. Darwin’s Six Points 100 Variation

  4. The part of Darwin’s theory of Evolution that explains that living space and food are limited so offspring from each generation must work against themselves in order to live. Darwin’s Six Points 200 Competition

  5. This point of Darwin’s theory of Evolution is any kind of inherited trait that improves an organisms chance of survival and reproduction in a given environment. Darwin’s Six Points 300 Adaptation

  6. This part of Darwin’s theory of Evolution explains that most species produce far more offspring than are needed to maintain the population. Darwin’s Six Points 400 Overproduction

  7. One of Darwin’s six points, describing the formation of a new species after many, many generations of passing on an inherited trait that fits a niche well. Darwin’s Six Points 500 Speciation

  8. Considered the common ancestor to all life on earth. Terms 100 Bacteria or Prokaryotes

  9. The idea that unrelated species evolve similar traits due to occupying similar niches Terms 200 Convergent Evolution

  10. Selam is of this species Terms 300 Australopithecus afarensis

  11. A physical characteristic in different organisms that is similar because it might have been inherited from a common ancestor. Terms 400 Homologous structure

  12. A hominid trait that increased over time and can be supported by data Terms 500 Brain case

  13. The branch of science that studies fossils of all living organisms, Pangea, and the movement of tectonic plates. Evidence for Change 100 Paleontology

  14. The branch of science that studies hominid and human evolution through the analysis of fossils. Evidence for Change 200 Physical Anthropology

  15. Evidence for Change 300 The name of the layers of the earth examined by Paleontologists Strata

  16. A process used by Paleontologists to determine the actual age of a fossil. Evidence for Change 400 Carbon Dating or Radioactive Dating

  17. Name three of the hominids studied by the Physical Anthropologists (give 2-part Latin names) Evidence for Change 500 Homo sapiens sapiens, Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, Homo erectus, Australopithecus boisei, Australopithecus afarensis

  18. The scientific theory that states that all living things came from a common ancestor and have changed across time. Essays 100 Evolution

  19. This man is acknowledged for his contributions to the theory of evolution but did not provide evidence in his research in as much detail as Darwin. Essays 200 Alfred Russell Wallace

  20. This is an explanation of natural phenomena that has been extensively tested, is supported by plenty of evidence, and is accepted by the large scientific community. DAILY DOUBLE - Essays 300 A Scientific Theory

  21. Where, geographically, Darwin spent most of his travels studying finches? Essays 400 South America/ Galapagos Islands

  22. This was the name of the boat Darwin and his crew used to sail around the world. Essays 500 HMS Beagle

  23. Type of diagram that shows the relationship of organisms to their ancestors as well as common ancestry. Grab Bag 100 A phylogenetic/evolutionary tree

  24. The random appearance of a new trait in an organism. Grab Bag 200 A mutation

  25. Name two human vestigial structures. Grab Bag 300 Wisdom teeth, appendix, nictitating membrane, tailbone, body hair, goosebumps

  26. An organism’s environment, place, or role within nature. Grab Bag 400 Niche

  27. This was the name of Darwin’s first published work. Grab Bag 500 On the Origin of Species

  28. FINAL JEOPARDY! Natural selection is driven by this; it is what constantly changes, causing the evolution of species. Environment in which an organism lives.
