Speciation- "The way natural selection leads to the formation of new species." (Johnson, 279). Speciation shows the steps traits took through natural selection that causes significant enough changes to form a new species.

Sorting Finch Species | HHMI's BioInteractive  Great for natural selection

Four decades of research on finch species that live only on the Galápagos Islands illuminate how species form and multiply.

FREE Teaching resources for 16-18 year olds: Biodiversity and Evolution – Darwin’s Finches Explore the importance of biodiversity and how observing variation in the beak shape of Galapagos finches helped Darwin to formulate his theory of natural selection. http://www.arkive.org/education/teaching-resources-16-18#resourceBiodiversityAndEvolutionDarwinsFinches2

In this scenario biodiversity drives natural selection as well as evolution. This relates to the class because you can see how the natural selection of the beaks creates biodiversity among the species, therefore creating more resilience in that species.

Clipbirds activity from Berkeley bolsters student understanding of natural selection. Students use different size binder clips to represent the different size beaks of Darwin's finches.
