Do you know it yet?
I can describe how fossils are formed.
I can explain how one species can diverge into separate species through accumulation of small changes over time.
I can explain at least 4 different reasons for gaps in the fossil record.
I can cite at least one fossil discovery in the last 30 years and explain how it has influenced our understanding of past organisms on earth.
I can use horse family fossil records to demonstrate the following examples:
- evolution resulting in 2 or more new species by divergence
- evolution resulting in new species without divergence
- simultaneous species
- gaps in the fossil record
If you aren't a 3 for all of these, get there! There is help for all the I Can statements on the Evolution tab on this website.
