From Darwin’s finches to the Birds-of-Paradise, Birds are the ideal animals to study when teaching topics such as natural and sexual selection and speciation. Utilizing online interactives from the Bird Academy’s website and our Evolution in Paradise lessons, we will explore natural and sexual selection and how it’s contributed to the diversity of birds through behavioral and anatomical adaptations.
In this webinar, you will:
- Tour Bird Academy’s online interactives related to diversity, evolution, and anatomy.
- Review the Evolution in Paradise lessons and discuss implementation and extension opportunities in the classroom.
- Learn the difference between natural and sexual selection and how it influences birds’ appearance and behavior.
This webinar is free and open to all educators, but the content is targeted to 6-12 grade educators.
