This Future Classroom Scenario has been developed as part of the Europeana DSI-3 project. The main objective of this scenario is to introduce students to the story of the comet orchid and the meaning of coevolutive interactions among living forms.
The learning scenario aims at finding and using original resources from Europeana repository and other archives, in order to understand and try to give an answer to one of the most famous debates within the theory of evolution: the evolutionary explanation of the unique shape and function of the comet orchid and its nectary. This lesson includes activities such as: searching in databases, performing small measurements on digitized samples, analysing clues, guessing and hypothesizing, giving events in a chronological order.
