Aligned to Science TEKS with clear Learning Outcomes, this unit covers instructional content including Hypothesis on Origins of Life, Dating Fossils, Geologic Time Scale, and Endosymbiotic Theory.
- 7A Analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular, and developmental
- 7B Analyze and evaluate scientific explanations concerning any data of sudden appearance, stasis, and sequential nature of groups in the fossil record
- 7G Analyze and evaluate scientific explanations concerning the complexity of the cell
- 9D Analyze and evaluate the evidence regarding formation of simple organic molecules and their organization into long complex molecules having information such as the DNA molecule for selfreplicating life
