7. How old was he by then?

8. Explain the key concept he found in the finches to propose his theory.

9. When did he publish the book presenting his theory of evolution? What was the title of this book?

10. What are homologous organs? Give example.

11. Make a list with the evidences of evolution.

12. Who thought of a very similar theory to Darwin´s one?

13. What is the basis of Neodarwinism?

14. What are the causes of variation according to Neodarwinism?

Speaking about Evolution, it is specially recommended this online activity: the birds eye view of the forest. It is a very clear resource to understand the  peppered moth evolution and the effect of the environment. You can play it on the interactive white board.

You should also try this easy and funny interactive activity on Evolution from the bbc web page. You can also revise Evolution or do the Test

Illustration from this site

This is a similar game to the peppered moth activity but this time it is about worms.

And this is about mating with the correct partner.
On this web you can find four more games related to the transfer of genetic information through generation to make a specie evolve

The interactive Tree of Life is a web in which  you can surf over this interactive Tree of Life, choose the two species you like and see its evolutionary relation.You can also see the documentary narrated by Sir David Attenborough here.

A list of activities on evolution

A good presentation on evolution.

A different one with ecological concepts linked to evolution

And this third one revising cell theory and Natural Selection

Illustration from this site

“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge:

it is those who know little,

and not those who know much,

who so positively assert that this or that problem

will never be solved by science.”

Charles Darwin

Looking for information about what an educational blog is I have found this science teacher blog, quite interesting, don´t you think?

But now let´s focus on this video in which a creationist gets absolutely ridiculed. You will have some fun with this ironic blond girl.
