What makes things living? How can we use evidence to understand the evolution of life on Earth?
15-20 days

All living things share a set of unique characteristics and processes that define life. While reviewing basic laboratory and microscopy techniques, students will explore the similarity and differences between cell types. Deeply investigating different domains and kingdoms of life allows for an introduction to the history of life on Earth, common ancestry, and evolution, which are key concepts spiraled throughout the remainder of the course.

Essential Questions:
What makes things living?
How can we use evidence to understand the evolution of life on Earth?
