Interactive presentation plan for: Horse-Like Creatures

Activity overview:

11 slides

A small population of horse-like animals have been relocated to an island. This new environment is different from their normal environment.

The island is colder and the only food source is a fruit that turns bright red when ripe and is located higher up in the trees. There are no predators on the island.

If we could travel hundreds of years into the future, what might we find on the island? Use your knowledge of natural selection to determine the following:

The animal has an allele for long hair and an allele for short hair. Which would most of the horse-like animals have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for brown eyes and an allele for blue eyes. Which one would they most likely have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for a long tail and an allele for a short tail. Which one would the animal have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for good hearing and an allele for poor hearing. Which one would they most likely have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for fast running and an allele for slow running. Which one would the animal most likely have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for color vision and an allele for no color vision. Which one would they most likely have and why?

The horse-like animal has an allele for a long nose and an allele for a short nose. Which one would they most likely have and why?

The horse-like animal has a gene for a long tongue and an allele for a short tongue. Which one would they most likely have and why?
