This workshop introduces your Year Six class to the concepts that underpin evolution.

In this workshop, they will:
– get the opportunity to look at evidence of change over time
– get hands-on with replica specimens to work out for themselves why these changes occur
– explore in an interactive session, how Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection is the mechanism behind these changes, using a real-life example of evolution currently happening

This workshop is an ideal introduction to the subject of evolution, but is equally useful for reinforcing prior knowledge through hands-on and engaging activities.
