Tips From Teachers

“I used The Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab as we researched the concepts of evolution and natural selection in my 10th grade biology class. The Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab applies central concepts and vocabulary to a real-life scenario to provide students an experience in doing real science. This is an excellent resource to apply major content topics and critical thinking skills that are needed on the Ohio state tests. This resource made evolution come alive and reinforced the idea that these processes really do occur in our world today.” -- Amy Kochensparger (Eaton High School, OH)
