Investigating Selection with New Polycots Fast Plants

This blog post from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Wisconsin Fast Plants, describes an investigation that educators can implement in the classroom to facilitate students' learning about variation and natural selection through firsthand observations and hands-on data collection in a very short time. The post offers an abbreviated example of how to conduct a classroom investigation with the Fast Plants Polycot.

It covers topics like the benefits of using the Polycot line of seeds in the classroom (easy to notice trait variations, large sample populations in a small classroom space), selecting traits for students to experiment with and observe, designing a selection investigation, observing and recording polycot generations data, and analyzing data.
