Plant Domestication: A class for upper-level high school students

By Xiang Li, Conviron Scholar.

The assignment was to develop a lesson for school students.

Our team (Xiang Li, Haley Carter, Nikolaos Ntelkis and Samantha Snodgrass) prepared the materials for a class of plant domestication designed for upper high school students. We aim to help students understand the process of evolutionary selection through plant domestication. We made slides, a handout for the teacher and an instruction for the game we designed for illustrating the process of evolution. Additionally, Samantha made a video to show how the game works. Hope everyone enjoy it!
