Students visit stations and explore live animals and animal materials that provide us with examples of evolution. Through guided discussion of their observations, students are introduced to a variety of topics, including fossils, Darwin's theory of natural selection, convergent and divergent evolution, and vestigial limbs. This program is designed as a learning cycle and includes pre- and post-visit activities.
