In this engaging and hands-on activity, Selection in Action, students build Lego and K'Nex cars which represent individual organisms in a population. The environment in which they must live and survive is composed of different obstacles, all designed to represent challenges that organisms face in the real world. Selection in Action helps students understand several evolutionary concepts, including natural selection and genetic variability within populations. In addition, they will learn to appreciate the important role that the environment plays in the evolution of all life-forms and species survival.
