Homework for Friday (If you finish early today you may begin during class):
Review your notes and the class blogpost from our first class this semester where we discussed the final passage from Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species.
Watch the story of Alfred Russel Wallace whose ideas about natural selection were announced at the same time as Darwin’s. This is a remarkable story in the history of science as a major explanation was reached by two different scientists independently. (Note, when I taught Science 7 at the Singapore American School, we visited some of the places described in this documentary.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1eQ6DadodA
Photo of 7th graders from Singapore American School exploring the forest of Gunung Ledang or Mount Ophir in Malaysia. This site is mentioned in the documentary about Alfred Russel Wallace.
Read Wallace’s paper: On the Tendency of Varieties to depart indefinitely from the Original Type. (This was sent from Ternate. What can you find out about this place?)
