NGSS Science and Engineering Practices:

NGSS Crosscutting Concepts:

  1. What are some of the key shared, derived traits that each group of fishes have?
  2. Choose an example of one of the more primitive fishes described in this section and compare it with an example of a teleost fish. How are they similar and different?
  3. Choose an evolutionary trend for teleost fishes (like spiny fins), find an example of a fish that has this adaptation, and describe how it is beneficial.
