Principles of Natural Selection // Giorgina Sekarputri 10 J

1. The individuals within a population differ from one another


2. The differences are, at least in part, passed from parents to offspring
3. Some individuals are more successful at surviving and reproducing than others
4. The successful individuals succeed because of the variant traits they have
inherited and will pass to their offspring

Instructions:
Press play
Press brown fur and add friends.

1. Hypothesize which bunnies would better survive in the arctic environment.


Why?

The white bunny will survive better in the arctic environment, because they need to
adapt with the environment being white since it is in the arctic.

2. Choose the arctic environment. What happened? Why?

Bunnies take over the world because they overpopulate due to no predator or
competition.

3. Add wolves. What happened now? Why?

The wolves eat the brown bunnies. Because the white bunny adapts with the white
snow in the environment.

4. Reset. Press Arctic. Give the bunny white fur. Add friends. Give food. What
happened? Why?

The white bunny has an unstable population. Sometimes it increases sometimes it


decreases.

5. Reset. Press Arctic. Click long teeth. Which one is depicted on the chart as a
larger population (long or short teeth)? Why do you think this happened?

The short teeth bunnies took over the world and overpopulate due to the food found
in the environment.

6. Click on long tails. Which one is depicted on the chart as a larger population
(long or short tail)? Why do you think this happened?

The short tail bunnies took over the world and overpopulate due to the

7. Repeat this experiment (steps 1-6) with the equator environment. Which
parameters allow for a better survival rate? Why?
Brown bunnies will survive well in the equator and the white bunnies get eaten by
the wolves. Therefore, the brown bunnies with both short teeth and tails will have a
better survival rate due to the equator environment.
Answers:

1. Bunnies with white fur would be better adapted to the artic environment and
would survive. Answers will vary.
2. Same as 1.
3. Bunnies with brown fur become extinct, leaving only the white bunnies left.
Answers will vary.
4. The bunnies reproduce and dominate the world! Answers will vary.
5. Bunnies with short teeth have a larger population. Answers will vary.
6. Bunnies with short tail have a larger population. Answers will vary.
7. Answers may vary but brown bunnies with short teeth and tails will have a
better survival rate.
