The Great Plankton Race

The competition known as The Great Plankton Race explores how natural selection and properties of matter can impact living things. This activity uses the survival techniques of plankton to introduce the basic properties held by matter in the physical universe. There are several parts to this activity that the class will explore one set at a time.
