Embryological Evidence of Common Ancestry
Next Generation Standards
MS-LS4-3 - Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy.
Clarification Statement - Emphasis is on inferring general patterns of relatedness among embryos of different organisms by comparing the macroscopic appearance of diagrams or pictures.
Assessment Boundary - Assessment of comparisons is limited to gross appearance of anatomical structures in embryological development.
MS-LS4-3 is not included in the Massachusetts State Standards.
