Student: "But Mr. Anderson, there's no 'control+F' function with a book? How do I find what I need?!"

Mr. Anderson: "You are so lucky. A book typically has an index and a table of contents where you can look up what you need. The index and the table of contents are the original 'control+F' function."

Future Creature

You are a prominent scientist. You will be attending a symposium to discuss your latest findings regarding the adaptations of a creature that undergone certain changes over the last 20 million years. You will be discussing the creature as it existed in 2014 and the global and environmental changes that influenced the adaptations to its current form. Your findings will be published in a and presented orally to the symposium. Your presentation will include at least three illustrations of your creature’s stages in evolution.

You will produce an interactive pop out timeline for your fellow scientists to view and learn about your research. This timeline will showcase the relationship between geological changes of the earth and the changes your creature went through to evolve.

    RADCAB- Website Evaluation

    RADCAB”™ is a great checklist to think about when using websites. Created by Karen M. Christensson, each link leads to her website going into further detail.

      Is the information relevant to the question at hand? Am I on the right track?

      Is the information suitable to my age and core values?

      How much information do I need? Is the depth of coverage adequate?

     When was the information published or last updated?

     Who is the author of the information? What are his or her qualifications?

      Why was this information written? Was it written to inform me, persuade me, entertain me, or sell me something?

     

    Search Terms to Consider

    Here are terms to consider as you research on your own:

    habitats, ecology, natural selection, adaptation, speciation, genetics, convergent evolution, biodiversity, biogeography, reptiles, mammals, birds, fish, genetic variation, adaptation physiology, adaptation biology, climate change, pollution.
    Naturally, you should also search the names of your particular creature once you have decided. Combine the name of your creature with terms like "evolution" or "adaptation." For example, I might search "crocodile" along with "adaptation" to see what kinds of results emerge.
