Sorting Finch Species
Cindy Gay describes using two BioInteractive resources to teach her students about evolution. She first shows them the short film The Beak of the Finch, which describes research by biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant on the Galápagos finches. She then uses the Sorting Finch Species Click & Learn to show students how to distinguish different finch species by song and appearance.
Jason Crean describes how he uses BioInteractive's "Beaks as Tools" activity to supplement understanding of Rosemary and Peter Grant's research on the evolution of the Galápagos finches.
Valerie May explains how she uses the BioInteractive short film Great Transitions: The Origin of Birds, along with its related activities, with her students. She also notes that many of BioInteractive's resources align to NGSS standards.
