Comparative Anatomy Scavenger Hunt
5th - 6th (but this lesson would also work well for 7th-12th)
Students will research their animals and their habitats, dissect the animals, and consider how the anatomy of each is adapted to its environment. They will observe vertebrate internal anatomy and compare the fish, bird, rat, snake, and frog. They will consider how the similarities and differences they observe provide evidence for evolution.
