This chapter uses an invitation to inquiry strategy to answer the question, What is natural selection? The students are engaged by a problem of a farmer trying to eliminate flies from a barn. Students explore reasons for the return of the flies. This activity emphasizes natural selection. In particular, it presents students with a significant environmental change—an insecticide—as one example of how natural selection operates in nature.
