Using Card Games to Simulate the Process of Natural Selection
Grilliot, Matthew E.; Harden, Siegfried
American Biology Teacher, v76 n2 p124-126 Feb 2014
In 1858, Darwin published "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection." His explanation of evolution by natural selection has become the unifying theme of biology. We have found that many students do not fully comprehend the process of evolution by natural selection. We discuss a few simple games that incorporate hands-on activities to demonstrate to students this important aspect of biology.
