Fossil Horses Go to School
A horse evolution curriculum developed by CPET teachers was recently featured in the online newsletter of the FOSSIL project. Jennifer Broo and Jessica Mahoney wrote the curriculum after they participated in the one-week Summer Science Institute: Advanced Topics in Evolutionary Biology and brainstormed with the other eight participating teachers. Jennifer opened her school year with the lessons, along with a school visit from two UF researchers (no small task considering Jennifer is now in Ohio!). Jessica is going to use the lessons in the spring semester.
The curriculum is available on our website http://www.cpet.ufl.edu/teachers/ssi/evolution/.
