Introduction to Evolution

It took Nature nearly 3.5 billion years to make us – but why did it take so long? This session charts our journey from the Big Bang, through Inheritance, Variation, Adaption and Evolution to the variety of life we see on our planet today

Each session runs approximately 45-60 minutes and includes:

  • How living things have changed over time
  • Why we are different to our family and friends
  • How our DNA instructions work
  • Interactive Evolution game

Join Dr. Lisa and the Dinky Amigos to get your Evolution & Inheritance topic off to an inspiring start!

Suitable for Years 5, 6 & 7 (Grades 4, 5 & 6)
