About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will investigate and analyze the anatomical similarities and differences between modern and ancient organisms.
As a result, students will:
- Describe evolutionary advantages of bone structure in modern and ancient organisms.
- Identify patterns seen in homologous structures in organisms to understand evolutionary relationships and patterns.
