A scientific think tank is running simulations of adaptations resulting from near-Earth asteroid disturbances. Students are biologists for the think tank and are tasked with classifying these new animals. Using the engineering design process as a guide, students research concepts related to genetics to brainstorm and create designs of a new animal formed from two existing animals. Students will explore concepts of biological classification, taxonomic ranks of animals, animal adaptations, evolution, and hierarchy on the food chain. This kit contains enough materials for 10 groups. Access to curricula materials can be found at http://www.nicerc.org.
Materials in this kit include: National Geographic Animal Encyclopedias, tweezers, plastic utensils, foam cups, dry spaghetti, paper clips, poster board, plastic coffee stirring straws, and marbles.
