Science 10

Today we covered the last topic in Biology:  The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection.  We watched these videos 

Next we got some notes found HERE on evolution.  Finally we played a survivor game to look at how natural selection works.   Complete this lab and turn in and then work on the visual dictionary.   We got a practice test for the Biology Unit Test coming up on Friday.
