George commented on Transitional Fossils

I really like this idea Emma. When working with my students on their transition from one chapter to the next I used a similar example; The transition of a snake shedding its skin. This is a useful metaphor because the snake actually goes blind for a little while and becomes irritable because of its vulnerability. Its previous skin because to small for it to allow for future growth or movement. The transition can be painful for the animal and it often requires a 'partner' to undergo a successful transition. I got the students to map their transition themselves based on the snakes anatomy. I didn't cover the three lessons you listed there, I really enjoyed reading them because they add a different perspective. Thank you
