Darwin Day - 12th February 2022

Darwin Day celebrates the birth of this eminent scientist who challenged the status quo of beliefs of the time to propose the radical new idea of evolution through natural selection. This collection brings together different resources from various publishers, suitable for all ages. For primary pupils the Darwin inspired resources from the Charles Darwin trust look at lifecycles, the environment and interdependence of living things.  For secondary pupils there are activities and experiments which explore adaptation, variation, natural selection and evolution.
