Description

Students are wowed by this 90 minute Comparative Embryology card sort, reading passages, questions and CER activity!

If you are teaching NGSS Performance Expectation MS-LS4-3 Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy, this resource is perfect for you!

Students attempt to organize random cards of different stages of embryonic development of a human, monkey, pig, chicken and salamander. When students finish their first attempt, they read the close reading and have a class discuss. Then you as the teacher show the students the key, they rearrange the cards correctly and the students then answer rigorous questions that hit the Performance Expectation MS-LS4-3, “Construct an explanation for how similarities in early embryonic development either supports or refutes the theory of evolution, using the sequence of pictures as evidence to support your claim. First state your claim of whether it supports or refutes evolution. Then use evidence from the pictures to support your claim in the form of a paragraph.” This is great for meta-cognition, critical thinking and rich class discussions.

This resource also includes a current article where students learn how Tiny ‘Lizard-Like’ Muscles Found in Developing Human Embryos Vanish Before Birth through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizer. This is great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The students figure out what the “Claim” is in the article, they then use data that supports the claim in the “Evidence” section, draw visual evidence and then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the “Reasoning” section. It directly relates to the card sort to reinforce and extend Comparative Embryology!

The resource has the following concepts:

Comparative Embryology 

Evolution

Embryological Development

Common Ancestors

Multicellular Organisms

Embryos

Species

Vertebrate

Patterns

Relationships

Hominid 

Mammal-like Reptiles

Fetal Muscle Development

Anatomical structures

This resource is approximately 90 minutes if you use the card sort and CER article.

NGSS Standards

Performance Expectations:

Natural Selection and Adaptations– Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy. MS-LS4-3

Disciplinary Core Ideas:

LS4.A:  Evidence of Common Ancestry and DiversityComparison of the embryological development of different species also reveals similarities that show relationships not evident in the fully-formed anatomy. MS-LS4-3

Science and Engineering Practices:

Analyzing and Interpreting DataAnalyze displays of data to identify linear and nonlinear relationships. MS-LS4-3 Analyze and interpret data to determine similarities and differences in findings. MS-LS4-1

Cross Cutting Concepts:

Patterns– Graphs, charts, and images can be used to identify patterns in data. MS-LS4-1, MS-LS4-3 Patterns can be used to identify cause-and-effect relationships. MS-LS4-2
