SESSION 3: What Is the Evidence for Evolution?

Engage Part B: Build a Concept Map

Fossil evidence contributed to our understanding of the evolution of whales. Darwin also used fossils and other evidence to develop his theory of evolution. Think back to Session 2, and build a concept map for this question: What different kinds of evidence did Darwin use to support his theory of evolution? (Put Evidence for Evolution in the center of the map.) Save this map to use later.

Refer to SESSION 1 for information on working with concept maps.
