Part of the Anthropology Curriculum Project, the document contains a programmed text on evolution and a vocabulary pronunciation guide. The unit is intended for use by students in social studies and science courses in the 5th, 6th, and 7th grades. The bulk of the document, the programmed text, is organized in a question answer format. Students are directed to fill in blanks, complete sentences, compile lists and then to turn the page and check their answers against the correct responses. Background information is interwoven throughout the text on a variety of evolution-related topics including various explanations of evolution, genes, inheritance, mutation, genetic drift, heredity, species, adaptation, natural selection, and comparative anatomy. The pronunciation guide which accompanies the programmed text lists and divides into syllables 21 evolution-related vocabulary words.
