Transcript of Evolution

So, what do you think we'll be learning about today?
Mind-mapping time!
What do you know about evolution?
What do you want to learn about evolution?
What questions do you have?
Meet Mr Charles Darwin!
(He was born on February 12th, 1908.)
He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...

Darwin said that your...
...a cell!
Over time the cells changed. New ones were born which were different to their parents and better at finding food!
He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...
As more and more were
born there were little differences between them – just like you and your friends are different.

He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...
Some were good at catching other animals to eat and they grew stronger.
Because they were better at finding food, they grew stronger and reproduced; they had more babies!
Some were good at scavenging for food and they grew stronger.

Darwin said that your...
Some had shells or weapons to stop being eaten. They grew stronger!

Darwin said that your...
Which bugs are more likely to survive and why?
He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...
How will these bugs evolve?
What if they moved to an orange leaf?
He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...
Over millions and millions of years, animals ADAPT to survive.
This is called 'adaptation'.
How have polar bears adapted?
A thick warm, white fur coat keeps the bear warm in below
freezing temperatures and provides camouflage in the snow.
Large Paws produce an oil that stops his feet freezing
on the snow.
Little eyes keep cold and icy snow blizzards out of their eyes.
How have camels adapted?
Humps can store a supply of water so camels don’t have to stop to drink

Big, flat feet enable camels to walk on the sand without sinking.
Long Legs help them to move across the desert quicker.
Long eyelashes keep sand out and shade against glaring sun.

Your task is to locate and describe the ways that a rainforest animal has evolved to adapt to its environment.
He caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that everyone - and every living thing - came from the same origin.
Darwin said that your...
Success Criteria:
Select an animal
Think about the environment it lives in
Think about its distinguishing features
Label the animal's features and explain why they have evolved

I am learning to describe how adaptation leads to evolution.
It's not only animals that have adapted!
We’ve looked at the different ways that existing plants and animals have adapted to their environments and that this afternoon we will be creating our own animals that have adapted perfectly to the harsh environment of the rainforest.
