Internet Resources
Predict how variation within a population affects the survival of a species.
5.1
Recognize that natural selection acts on an organismís phenotype rather than its genotype.
5.2
Describe how reproductive and geographic isolation affect speciation.
5.3
Analyze population changes in terms of the Hardy-Weinberg principle.
5.4
  1. The Hardy-Weinberg Equation - If you know the frequency of an allele that causes a trait you can use an equation to make predictions - use this interactive lab to explore the Hardy-Weinberg Equation This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Model
  3. Java applets illustrating gene dropping - There are two applets, each contain the same ten pedigrees. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  4. Population and Evolutionary Genetics - The Hardy-Weinberg Law
  5. Understanding a Gene Pool - You will make a model gene pool based on an initial assumed population, collect data to test the Hardy-Weinberg principle, compare your data to predictions in a cross-multiplication table, and use a model gene pool to examine the change in allele frequencies caused by harmful genotypes in a given environment. A lesson plan can be found at this site
Explain how amount of biodiversity is affected by habitat alteration.
5.5
Use fossil evidence, DNA structure, amino acid sequences, and other data sources to construct a cladogram that illustrates evolutionary relationships.
5.6
  1. All in the Family - a PBS activity in which students construct a cladogram This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. A resource for the teacher to use in planning their lessonsAn Introduction to the Principles of Taxonomy
  3. Animal and Plant Classification - a 20 question Quia quiz This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  4. Animal Classification Jeopardy - a Quia quiz This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  5. A resource for the teacher to use in planning their lessonsCarl von Linne and the Linnean System of Nomenclature
  6. Classify This! - You are challenged to classify groups of animals, finally arriving at a distinction between complete and incomplete metamorphosis. Following the interactive classification you will take a quiz. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  7. Classifying Animals - When you classify an animal you place it in the group to which it belongs
  8. Classifying Animals - an overview of the seven taxons from Fact Monster
  9. Dichotomous Key Activity - print page one, name the creatures, and then follow the links at the bottom of each page of the online key
  10. Leaf Litter Arthropod Key from Hope College - this key is based on number of legs
  11. Water Critter Key: Life in a Pond - Pick a critter from the aquatic critter key game. Look at your critter and choose one of the descriptions given. Then, follow the links that you think are correct.
  12. What is the Key to Classification - explanation of what a key is and how to make one [if you use the links page you will find many dead links]
  13. Who Wants to be an Animal Classification Millionaire? - a Quia quiz This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
