This data-driven activity accompanies the video Selection for Tuskless Elephants. It engages students in analyzing data to make evidence-based claims about the occurrence of tusklessness in elephant populations.
This activity extends concepts covered in the film Got Lactase? The Co-Evolution of Genes and Culture. Students analyze data from the scientific literature to draw conclusions about the geographic distribution of lactase persistence.
Several questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: Got Lactase? The Co-evolution of Genes and Culture, which explores the genetics of lactase persistence and evolution of the trait in some human populations.
In this activity, students apply concepts pertaining to the genetics of sickle cell disease and its relationship to malaria explored in the short film The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans.
In this activity, students evaluate and discuss statements about the evolutionary relationship between milk consumption and lactose tolerance discussed in the short film Making of the Fittest: Got Lactase? The Co-evolution of Genes and Culture.
