I am learning more about what is being taught related to Biological Evolution. I learned what is considered evidence showing how different species are related. Fossils are being compared with one another and to living organisms according to their similarities. I know that evolution is a continuous and ongoing event. Traits that help an individual species survive will help that species survive. I also know that the environment plays a big part in variants in species. A species needs to adapt to their environment, which also strengthens a trait, and may result in a new species.
I think students may not understand that change occurs in organisms. I need to make sure they realize the environment and specific traits help a species survive or become extinct. I will make sure the students look at different animals and talk about why they survived or became extinct.
