Description:

For this written assignment, the students outline the evolution of whales from land dwelling animals to aquatic beasts. Rather than an essay, they produce a detailed outline of the major modifications that occurred during this transition, such as hearing, propulsion, shape, limbs, and several others. They start with Start with Pakicetidae and end with Mysticeti and Odontoceti lines. For each fossil species, they describe the fossil, discuss the anatomic modification for living in an aquatic environment, indicate the environment where the animal lived, and the give the time range.
