Natural Selection Lesson

Full lesson (or two?) based on the concepts of Darwinian Evolution/natural selection.

Includes 2 lesson plans jammed with activities, a powerpoint (minimalist is my style) and a ‘game’ to help see the idea of natural selection through time - each generation being selected for/against by nature. You need 1x d6 to play the game and I recommend playing it with a pot of sweeties - 50/50 mix of liquorice and haribo. Give kids 1x sweetie during the lesson. How many of each are left by the end?

Hope you like it!
