|Description||This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society's 2006 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. The purpose of this lesson is to teach students about natural selection and evolution by developing a model of an ocean organism’s feeding apparatus (beak) and see if the organism can survive/adapt if environmental conditions change. Students should have background knowledge about environmental changes that occur quickly (forest fires) and those that occur more slowly (succession). Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to investigate how an organism can adapt to a particular environment or it will become extinct.|
