What the Moths Taught Us


This unit will help us to understand the process of adaptation and evolution of a species of moths as an effect of the Industrial Revolution. Students will play a game to gain experience of the concepts central to the unit. Then, they will read a passage about observations made in the 1950’s by a biologist about the phenomenon of industrial melanism. Finally, they will think through their experiences in the game, and what they read in the passage, by answering some questions.
