How I Use It
I would use this product either for individual practice after students had already explored content about natural selection or for an activating strategy in the beginning to introduce them to the concept of natural selection.
My Take
I like that the graphics are interesting and the game is fast paced encouraging continued experimentation. I also like the clock feature that illustrates how much time is required for speciation. However, there are no direct extensions as part of the game nor is there any type of check for understanding at the end.
