    I really struggled to teach this lesson. I had been given the sheets already printed out to me but they didn't seem to match the activity- the true and false checklist.
    It just seemed too confusing.

    I love the changes to this resource. There are now question cards which allow the children to explore the ideas of thinkers. Thanks

    Hi, I can't seem to open the files for this resource once downloaded. Other resources on the website are fine - just this one.... A message pops up saying that the file name is too long. I'd be grateful for any help. Thank you.

    I really loved the powerpoint and thought that the explanation of Darwin's ideas were great. However, the activity for children is not, in my opinion, not that great. I really struggled to see how children would manage this. There is no clear cut distinction between some of their ideas. In the end, I have posted questions about the different ideas of evolution. Perhaps this could be looked into.
