explain the differences between similar species?
2. What important observations did Darwin make on his voyage?
3. What are examples of traits that organisms possess?

Adaptations can be structures or behaviors. What is an example?
What are the different pieces of evidence that support evolution?
How are branching trees used? Be able to read a branching tree.
What evidence do scientists examine to determine how closely species are
related?
5. How do new species form?
6. How can one species evolve into another species?
III. The Fossil Record:
1. How are fossils usually formed?
2. How does the different layers of the Earth’s crust determine which fossil is
