When you arrive late on your first day at secondary school, you are sent to the headteacher. But a strange-looking man called Darwin is in the headteacher’s office and asks you to accompany him on a trip through time. Your mission? To prove the theory of evolution.


In this Experience, your class will learn about:

  • The inheritance of characteristics from our parents
  • How animals adapt to environments over time by inheriting favourable characteristics
  • The role of natural selection in this process (“survival of the fittest”)
  • How Charles Darwin proved the theory of evolution, in the face of opposition

Resources for each Experience include:

  • For KS1 & KS2: Recap, Discuss & Quiz; Glossary; Reading Comprehension; Grammar & Punctuation; Writing Opportunities
  • For EYFS: Recap, Create & Play; Word Mat; Actions Storyboard; Song lyrics & mp3s (for some Experiences)
