Pew Research Center: Major Gaps Between the Public, Scientists on Key Issues

This fascinating study of discrepancies between the general public and scientists on a host of science-related issues can enrich classroom discussions of political science, biology, chemistry, physics, agriculture, astronomy, geology, and other subjects. Originally released by the Pew Research Center in July of 2015, the study opens with a pithy graph detailing the divide between scientists and the public on issues such as evolution, animal testing, overpopulation, and other quandaries. For instance, approximately 100 percent of scientists agree that humans and other living things have evolved over time. However, only 65 percent of the public agrees with this statement. In addition to a general overview, the site links to An Elaboration of AAAS Scientists' Views and a PDF of the complete report.
