LKS2 Science - Charles Darwin Reading Comprehension & Biography Writing Bundle

Two great activities that would span five lessons about the life of famous evolutionary scientist, Charles Darwin. The activities follow his life, five-year voyage on HMS Beagle, scientific work and publications, and his death and legacy. The resources are perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about scientists.

NO PREP is needed!

Firstly, there is a reading comprehension activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.

Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

We specialize in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. We also have a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
