week of 2/17 - 2/20

   This week will begin our next unit on Evolution and everything that goes with it. Evolution is in our district curriculum so I have to teach it. I am in no way telling the students what they should believe in or trying to change their minds. They can believe in whatever they want to believe in regards to evolution, I don't care. Just bare with me for a few weeks and we will get through this before you know it.
    During the week the students will tackle our third CSA and two CFAs as well. The CFAs are a homework grade and the CSA will be a test grade. The CSA will be over content that we just took a test on so the information should be fairly fresh in their minds.

Here are some great videos to look at. Some of these we will look at in class
What is Evolution? , Crash Course: Evolution It's a thing , Crash Course: Natural Selection

Oh and an awesome game that is definitely worth playing. You pick the traits that will be favorable for the creature to survive 1 million years!
Darwin's Game of Survival

Tuesday 2/17: CFA 1, What is a Theory video, What's evolution video and common                            misconceptions of evolution
Wednesday 2/18: CFA 2, Puzzle activity and Ch 16 self-guided notes
Thursday 2/19: CSA #3, Evolution of an Object activity
