Reviewer Comments:

In this lesson, early high school students will design a presentation that will trace the development of an organ system through the major phyla of the animal kingdom looking for advantages or adaptations in the system. The suggested final product is a PowerPoint presentation. A nice introduction to using PowerPoint and a basic assessment is included. Assignment requirements, group roles, journal starters and a list of recommended websites are also included to facilitate collaborative research. This well-organized unit is aligned to the North Carolina Standards for Biology and Information Skills.
