Learning and Teaching Resources

This teaching resource offered to teachers by the Natural History Museum is a great resource for teachers regarding evolution and the origins of life on Earth. The video, which can link to the curriculum for both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 learning programmes, explores how small shells found on a mountaintop in the Andes inspired Darwin’s thoughts and ideas.

Visual Teaching Material

This visual teaching material is something that can be used in a wider topic of work for students studying about evolution, and would be ideal to use as an accompanying material to other resources and lesson plans. The resource outlines the links it has to Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 curriculums, including discovering how evidence is collected and used to develop scientific ideas for KS3.

Cross Curricular Links

Cross curricular links are also established between the subjects of science and geography, exploring how the geology and geography of South America motivated Darwin’s theories and ideas.
