Title Natural Selection vs. Change in Organisms
Description We will be utilizing Bugscope to help us discover some in depth pictures and analysis of natural selection and changes in organisms. We would like to compare two similar species of bugs, specifically madagascar hissing cockroaches and one other type, to show the similarities and differences that you might not be able to see otherwise. This unit has not included electron microscopy before, but we will add it. We will also be examining other microscopes so that the students might actually see and experience the differences between electron microscopes, dissecting microscopes, and compound microscopes.
