SC.7.L.15.3 Explore the scientific theory of evolution by relating how the inability of a species to adapt within a changing environment may contribute to the extinction of that species.

SC.7.N.3.1 Recognize and explain the difference between theories and laws and give several examples

SC.7.N.3.2 Identify the benefits and limitations of the use of scientific models.

SC.7.N.1.3 Distinguish between an experiment (which must involve the identification and control of variables) and other forms of scientific investigation and explain that not all scientific

Advanced
SC.912.L.15.13 Describe the conditions required for natural selection, including: overproduction of offspring, inherited variation, and the struggle to survive, which result in differential reproductive success.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will: 15.3
• explain how the inability of a species to adapt in a quickly changing environment may contribute to the extinction of that species, such changes may include:
o human impact, natural disasters, food scarcity, and non-native species
• simulate (model) how adaptations may or may not contribute to extinction

Advanced 15.13

        1. describe the conditions required for natural selection, including: overproduction of offspring, inherited variation, and the struggle to survive, which result in differential reproductive success
