    Hello all,

    I am wanting to get some creative and interesting ways to make the topic of evolution come alive for the 11th grade students I will be student teaching this semester. Evolution is the unit I will be mostly tackling on my own. Does anyone have a good resource for lessons or has done some for this topic successfully?

    Try Evolution 101--I taught AP Biology the last 2 years and found some great activities there.

    Thank you. I will check out Evolution 101. I have Googled things, but the choices are a bit overwhelming, so I was wondering if anyone has done lessons that they thought really went well.
