Students work in teams to try to answer questions to cross the board in any direction. Click on hexagons once for one team's correct answers (to change it to one colour) or twice for the second team (to get a second colour). Two versions of the slides are included - an easy one based on letters (which can be too obvious) and a second one where students pick a number (more challenging!). Word document of questions and answers included.
Revision game/activity. Following the instructions on the first powerpoint slide, students draw out a 16-square grid. Alternatively, give out a copy of the second slide. Students decide if each statement is true (tick) or false (cross). Review answers by right clicking on each square in the grid (tick or cross will appear).

Planet SciCast describes the short video as 'A terrific example of how good delivery and simple visuals can combine to rattle through a considerable amount of material in no time flat'.
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons.
The Timeline Poster is one activity and the Darwin text based activity is the second activity.
The text may be too textual for low ability or low reading age students, my low reading age group had an LSA and they were ACE!
