  1. Hi Katie & Sydney!
    I love the idea of having a pre-test before diving deeper into the topic of evolution. These examples are a great way to start too. It made me think about it! The information provided is both simple & informative. Great job!

  2. I think this is a great activity! It provides instant feedback to students if they get a question wrong but then it also tells them what the correct answer is. That is important so then students can understand why that answer is correct.
