Item #: FB2011
Studying Seed Evolution Using Histograms Laboratory Kit for biology and life science allows you to analyze the frequency and symmetry of distribution and draw conclusions about the natural selection of seed size.
Looking for a creative way to teach evolution? Study seed evolution by making histograms! Evolution often conjures mental images of monkeys to cavemen to modern humans. In reality, evolution can be studied on a much simpler scale. Measure mass and length of sunflower seeds to see how such traits are selected in nature. Histograms created from the data allow students to analyze the frequency and symmetry of distribution and draw conclusions about the natural selection of seed size.Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Five calipers are included for student groups to share. Additional calipers are available separately.
