Transcript of Charles Darwin presentation

a presentation Charles darwin Charles Darwin Noticed evidence that animals had gone through changes. He saw a giant armadillo fossil, but he also saw other armadillos near by that looked like the extinct one but with changes. Darwin was confused on how the alive nearby armadillos shared the same characteristics but with some change from the extinct one, he saw many in one area and not as much in the other places. Charles Darwin wondered why one species of armadillo was extinct and the other almost identical alive A exploration on the ship H.M.S Beagle to South America Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, England. His father was a successful physician and his mother was the daughter of a porcelainware maker. Charles Darwin At 16 he went to the university of Endinburgh to become a physician. He was sick of watching surgical procedures and transfered to Cambridge College where he met John Henslow who invited him on a ship called the Beagle for 5 years to South America as a naturalist on December 1831 Darwin landed in the Galapagos in 1835 where he found the most important investigations. On different Galapagos islands Darwin saw that there were 14 types of finch birds but with different beaks. Some finches had big hard beaks to crack seeds and some had thin beaks to pull insects out of cracks. exploration in South America

7 year old Charles around 70 years Darwin did not think god created every single species in certain periods of time. Darwin wondered if the animals changed randomly or changed to survive eating a type of food source. He then realized animals were able to changed and not stay the same as the first of its kind. Animals could evolve to fit the habitat and survive to eat the food in the area andget used to it. Wondering On October 1836, Charles Darwin returned to Britain. Darwin focused on putting his ideas into the theory of evolution. He wondered why the embryos of lizards and rabbits are the same, and why some animal bones look the same, and why humans have functionless organs like the appendix that other animals have. He thought this was because some parts are alike from a common ancestor. Back to England 50 years before Darwin, scientist thought about evolution and similarities between animals, but ideas were cautious until Darwin wrote his book th origin of species explaining everything. Darwin's observation convinced most of the scientist, but his explanations lacked how traits were made or produced. Darwin's idea merged with Gregor Mendels theory that a gene was the basic unit. Schools that Darwin attended The H.M.S Beagle Galapagos islands 1A .-born in 1809 on February 12.
Died in 1882
1B.- Born in Shrewsbury,England, studied at the
galapagos islands and died in Downe,England
1C.-studied medicine at university of Edinburgh
-studied animals,plants, and geology at
university of Cambridge
1D.-wrote book origins of species
-left to south America ln the ship beagle.
-came back to study his theory
-created the theory of evolution.
1E. 7 facts aboutupersonal life
-had a dog named Polly
-married second cousin Emma
-had 10 children but 3 died young
-his favorite type of music was classical even
though he was tone deaf
-He listened to his trained pianist wife for
30 min. every day on his schedual
-as a child he did chemistry in his lab outside. Bullet points 1 2A.-most important science contribution was the theory of evolution
2B.-evolution helps people destroy diseases to know how the disease evolves to create new vaccines. Scientist need to know how animals will evolve to save animals like polar bears to help them survive and help them adapt to land.
2C.- bioligist use evolution in life science to see how new species of animals will evolve from the old version of the animal
2D.- for flu shots scientist use evolution to estimate how the virus will change the next year so you can have flu shots
-we can see extinct animals and know what it's offspring is like
2E- evolution has not changed because evolution is only the way things change or evlove and evolution can't change but evolution can change other things like animals Bullet points 2 3C.- Charles Darwin worked
by himself

other questions answered in circles
