                                                                                         Due Date: ___________
Directions:

      _____1. Create your own organism or select one that already exists.

      _____2. In seven stages, show how your creature has changed throughout time.
          The seven stages must be neatly drawn on unlined paper (legal size paper)
          Use colored pencils, markers, or nice pens
          Clearly show how creature has changed in each stage


      _____3. CAPTION: Include the following information next to each picture, #’ed 1-4:
             1. Scientific name of creature (ex. Canus domesticus, Homo sapien, Felis sylvestris)
             2. Adaptation: trait that has allowed organism to survive
             3. Selecting Agent: environmental change that has occurred
             4. How this adaptation allowed organism to survive (minimum 2-3 sentences)


      _____4. On a separate sheet of paper, answer the following:
          Using theory of natural selection (Darwin’s points and modern theory additions), explain how your
             organism has evolved. (minimum 5-7 complete sentences)

      _____5. Using the rubric, check your work.
          Attach completed rubric and paragraph to your drawing.
