Year 6 Evolution and Inheritance Knowledge Organiser!

This clear, detailed and visually-appealing resource offers a complete reference point for Year 6 children, teachers and parents covering knowledge relating to ‘Evolution and Inheritance’, as a part of their science learning. It contains comprehensive sections on:

Inheritance and Mutation;
Evidence of Evolution;
Animal Adaptations;
Key Vocabulary (underlined).

The content is fully aligned with the NC expectations for Year 6 children relating to ‘Evolution and Inheritance:’
-Recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide
information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago;
-Recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents;
-Identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different
ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.

The resource is designed to be printed onto A3, and is provided as both a PDF and a Word version (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
