In the clip below, is Ross using the correct language when he describes the theory and evidence for evolution?
Here is the class presentation
And the Essential Biology notes can be found here: https://www.box.net/shared/550sxdbx82
There are many sources of interactives and animations on Evolution on the internet. Here are a few:
PBS Evolution has lots of high-quality activities and videos
BiologyInMotion has a very clear population evolution interactive
The Exploring Evolution weblab has examples of homologous structures and fossil evidence
MMHE has a pesticide resistance tutorial
And there are some good peppered moth simulations here and here
As always, sumanas has a great resource – this time on antibiotic resistance
And John Kyrk has a truly awesome timeline of the evolution of life
Attenborough on Darwin: The Tree Of Life
Dawkins Darwin Lectures from OU/BBC
And of course, all of Darwin’s works are available online from darwin-online.org
And here’s Dawkins on the evolution of the eye:
