Final Jeopardy
Vocabulary 100 The remains of organisms preserved
in the earth.
  • What is a fossil?

Vocabulary 200 A reduced and unused physical
structure in an organism, which was more
developed in an earlier group of organisms.
What is a vestigial organ?
Vocabulary 300 A population of a species becomes
physically separated into two populations for a
period of time. Later these populations come
together and are not able to breed. This is an
example of__________.
What is speciation?
Vocabulary 400 This caused the forelimb
adaptations represented by structures B, C, and D.
What is natural selection?
Vocabulary 500 A segment or section of DNA that
relates to a specific trait or function of an
What is a gene?
Earth A Home for Life 100
The correct order that mammals, insects and
reptiles appeared on land.
What is insects, reptiles, and mammals?
  • Earth A Home for Life
  • 200
  • The first multicellular organisms to live on land
    appeared this many years ago.
  • 500 million B. 3.8 billion
  • 1.2 million D. 1.2 billion

What is A 500 million.
  • Earth A Home for Life
  • 300
  • During the Permian Extinction, about _______ of
    the species living in the ocean became extinct.
  • 90 C. 50
  • 10 D. 1

What is A. 90?
Earth A Home for Life 400 Scientists think that
this is what caused the Permian extinction 250
million years ago and how and why it may have
What is what is the Earths land masses joining
together causing 90 of the species in the ocean
and many land dwelling animals to die ? The
formation of one big continent changed the
climate and conditions in the ocean.
Earth A Home for Life 500 This is when, why and
how scientists think the Cretaceous extinction
happened and what disappeared.
What is 65 million years ago scientists think
that an asteroid hit the Earth which caused a
climate change and the dinosaurs disappeared?
After the dinosaurs died out, many new mammals
began appearing.
Species Change over Time 100 The relative age of
a fossil tells you a. whether one fossil is older
or younger than another fossil b. exactly when a
fossil was formed c. the amount of radioactivity
in a fossil d. how long the fossilized organism
was alive on Earth
What is A, whether one fossil is older or younger
than another fossil?
  • Species Change over Time
  • 200
  • Lamarck proposed that species evolve because
  • they adapt to their surroundings over time.
  • they can pass on traits acquired during their
    lifetimes to their offspring.
  • they overproduce and a variety of species come
    from each offspring.
  • natural laws decide when they should change.

What is B, they can pass on traits acquired
during their lifetimes to their offspring?
  • Species Change over Time
  • 300
  • Most__________ will become more common from one
    generation to the next.
  • variations
  • mutations
  • speciations
  • adaptations

What is d adaptations?
Species Change over Time 400 According to
Lamarck, could the parents of the tortoise from
Abingdon Island be born with a short neck?
What is yes, they could have stretched their
necks during their lives and then passed on that
trait to their offspring?
Species Change over Time 500 This is how
variation and adaptation may have led to the
development of long-necked tortoises on Abingdon
Species Change over Time 500 Answer Slide
  • The offspring of the ancestors of present-day
    tortoises on Abingdon island differed from each
    other in small ways.
  • One of these variations was likely neck length.
    The tortoises competed with one another for
  • The better adapted tortoises, with long necks,
    survived and reproduced at a higher rate.
  • Therefore, long-necked tortoises became more

  • Evidence for Evolution
  • 100
  • A lizard and a bat have similar forelimbs, but
    they are used in different ways. This is
    evidence that supports the theory of evolution
  • artificial selection
  • natural selection
  • acquired characteristics
  • similarity of structures

What is similarity of structures?
  • Evidence for Evolution
  • 200
  • One of the following pairs of organisms will have
    the most similar genes.
  • tree and flower
  • flower and bacterium
  • bacterium and human
  • human and tree

What is a, tree and flower?
Evidence for Evolution 300 This is why structure
A in the diagram to the right is an example of a
vestigial organ.
What is the whale leg is a structure that was
fully developed in whale ancestors now it has
become reduced and unused in modern whales?
Evidence for Evolution 400 Structures B, C, and
D are forearms of different animals share a
common ancestor. What type of biological
evidence is this?
What is similar structures with different
Evidence for Evolution 500 Four types of
evidence that scientists us to support the theory
of evolution.
What are by observation, fossil evidence,
biological evidence, and genetic evidence?
Random facts. 100 The name of Tims robot.
What is Moby?
Random Facts 200 What Precambrian time refers to.
What is the earliest period in Earth's history?
Random Facts 300 What you should do to the caps
on plastic bottles.
What is take them off before recycling?
Random Facts 400 These are five renewable
What is sunlight, wind, water, trees and other
plants, and animal waste?
Random Facts 500 The name of the ship that Darwin
travelled to the Galapagos Islands on.
What is the Beagle?
Metric system 100 The number of centimeters in
one meter.
What is 100 cm?
Metric system 200 Centimeters in one kilometer.
What is 100,000 cm?
Metric system 300 Millimeters in one meter.
How much is 1000 mm?
Metric system 400 The number of meters to
measure out 365 years where 1cm 1 year.
What is 3.65 m?
Metric system 500 The number of centimeters in
three and a half meters.
What is 350 cm?
Final Jeopardy The bones of a whale flipper
(left) are similar to the bones of a bat wing
(right) as shown in the illustration below. What
does this similarity in bone structure suggest
about the whale and the bat?
  1. They use the same methods to travel.
  2. They can migrate to the same locations.
  3. They evolved from a common ancestor.
  4. They can manipulate objects in the same way.

  • Final Jeopardy Answer
  • What is C. They evolved from a common ancestor?
