A worksheet that guides students through The Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab. The virtual lab lets students learn firsthand the methods for analyzing body structure in stickleback collected from lakes and fossils recovered from a quarry. Students measure, record, and graph their results to discover evolutionary patterns.
These worksheets were developed to support use of The Virtual Stickleback Evolution Lab in the classroom. They are meant to provide students with structure and guidance as they perform the tutorials, experiments, and quizzes in the lab. There are two versions: an advanced worksheet and a basic worksheet. The only difference between them is that the basic worksheet does not contain the chi-square analyses portions of the lab. The teacher materials provide background information and tips for using the virtual lab.
