DIVING ACROSS THE ANIMAL KINGDOM – WHEN THE SEARCH FOR FOOD DRIVES THE EVOLUTION

Diving to 1500 meters and staying submerged for 1.5 hours when you do not have gills, only lungs, do you think you would manage? What about being able to fly, but at the same time dive to 150 meters? By joining this webinar, you can at least manage to understand how it is possible! You will learn about how the body of arctic mammals and birds are designed to make them able to find their food, no matter how deep into the waters they need to go for it. I will also teach you how this relates to evolution, the evolvement of species over time.

POLARPEDIA terms for this webinar: alveolus, natural selection, evolution

We will play and have fun with a Kahoot in this webinar, so please allow your students to attend with their cell phones or tablets. As a teacher, you want to also have a multimedia projector and loudspeakers.

NOTE: If there are no places left for the lesson, please still enrol to be on a standby list.
