Hey hey everyone!
Today we took a closer look at homologous structures by doing a gallery walk, analyzing a picture with various animal limbs, and answering conclusion/synthesis questions.
In order to complete this activity, students learned a new vocabulary phrase “ANALOGOUS STRUCTURES“. We differentiated between homologous and analogous by using the following chart.
Early finishers completed “Hand it to the Animals“, an interactive activity on the SmartBoard. You can find the link below.

Tomorrow (because we have a teacher workday on Friday) we have a quiz covering the Theory of Evolution, natural selection, and homologous structures. We’ll also include a vocabulary section to make sure you study your vocabulary words!
Study study study!
