Scientists have presented two claims: climate change or human hunters. In this lesson students apply their knowledge of evolution and study evidence to decide which claim is best supported.
- Evolution: Explain how a change in the environment can leave a species less well adapted which may lead to extinction.
- Critique claims: Use evidence to support or refute claims for why mammoths became extinct.
