Creation myths

This online resource provides access to materials about several creation myths that prompts students to think about how myths can influence scientific theory.

This is an interesting way to introduce evolution by natural selection and to help recognise that there are different views in the community about the creation of life.

Evolution cards

This online resource has student activities for the study of evolution.

Of particular relevance is the 'Evolution Cards' activity, where students are provided with a series of cards to sort in order to demonstrate an understanding of the process of natural selection.

There is a set of cards that indicate the steps in the natural selection process, and two sets of cards that illustrate two examples of natural selection in action (peppered moth and resistant bacteria).

The web page provides lesson instructions and answers as well as the activity cards.
