An engaging and low prep bundle of resources for your speciation and extinction lesson!

Your students will love the bright and interactive Google Slides. Activities include a word fill, an allopatric speciation storyboard, identifying causes of extinction, and more! Concepts are brought to life with custom graphics, helping students to understand and remember them.

Once students have completed the slides, you can use the Doodle Notes as a review. These are also great for homework assignments, sub plans, and test prep. Best of all, students love using Doodle Notes! After that, you can easily check student progress using the Google Forms Quiz – it’s self-grading so there is no extra work for you.
