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 he 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:

  • How we inherit characteristics from our parents
  • How animals become suited to their environment over time by inheriting favourable characteristics
  • The role of natural selection (“survival of the fittest”) in this process
  • How Charles Darwin proved the theory of evolution (in the face of opposition)

Resources for each Experience include:

  • For EYFS, Actions Storyboard, Song Sheet and Script
  • For Keystage 1 & 2, Storyboard, Quiz, Reading Comprehension, Writing Opportunities and Script
