Today please read I would like you to complete the activities under the heading “Vocabulary” (page 11) which will lead into the next activity “Comprehension” (Page 12-20).

Today is the second lesson exploring how human intervention has accelerated and created adaptations in plants and animals.  Today, read the information and complete the activity on – classifying plants and animals under different categories related to selective human intervention (We have used a Carroll diagram before – so this should be familiar to you).

The last slide asks you two important questions - Should humans intervene in this way? Why? Why not? And What effect will this have on living things in the future?  I would like you to write a persuasive text arguing your point of view (I encourage you to do some of your own research and information gathering before you make up your mind).
