These bright and fun doodle notes will bring speciation and extinction to life!

Your students will love filling in and coloring their notes. They cover allopatric and sympatric speciation, as well as prezygotic and postzygotic barriers to successful reproduction. The causes of extinction are explored, along with mass extinctions. This is a great review, and can also be used for sub plans, homework assignments, or test prep.

There are multiple versions for easy differentiation. Use the scaffolded fill-in-the-blanks version to support students or the open response version to challenge students. And the color version can be used for digital assignments with a PDF markup tool like Kami.
