Tool for "Create Layer from Selection"?

I am working on a class project where we need to create a model that will accomplish the goals of our GIS project. For a portion of mine I need to narrow down a census block layer. I know how to select the features that I want (blocks with land area > 0, blocks with pop>0, etc.) and I can create a new layer in the table of contents by right clicking and choosing "Create Layer from Selection". What I would like to do is do that within model builder, so each successive step will be dealing with fewer and fewer census blocks as it is whittled down.

Below is an image of a tool that I have found that seems like it would work but I cannot get it to open at all. I am running ArcGIS 10.1 with all extensions.
