Students will take on the role of artists submitting a piece of work and an artist statement that tells the story of life (grounded in concepts of evolution) for a contest for a natural history exhibition. In their art (or artist statement), students will show their knowledge of the evolution of life forms from organic molecules to more complex structures.
