3B: Exploring Variation and Heritability
During this lesson, students will be asked to think about two important components of Darwin's model of natural selection in greater detail. First, they will have an opportunity to explore the natural variations present in a variety of organisms. Specifically, they will examine sunflower seeds and Wisconsin Fast Plants™. Next, they will use data and graphs of that data from an artificial selection experiment to consider the role of heredity in natural selection.
