A lesson that uses real rock pocket mouse data collected by Dr. Michael Nachman and his colleagues to illustrate the Hardy-Weinberg principle.
This activity serves as a guide to the HHMI short film The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection and Adaptation and a means of reinforcing the concepts of variation and natural selection. If your class does not cover the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, you may wish to use the other activity, "Color Varation Over Time in Rock Pocket Mouse Populations."
