In this lesson, students will learn firsthand, by reading his journal entries and letters, how Darwin arrived at his theory. They also will gain a better sense of Darwin's journey and the role it played in his scientific career. In the first activity, Darwin's Great Voyage of Discovery, students will read his account of his voyage on the Beagle and see how this experience inspired him to devote the rest of his life to developing and refining the theory of natural selection. The second activity, Evolution's Role in History, will enable the student to find out how scientific ideas paved the way for Darwin's theory of natural selection and how his theory changed the course of science. Each activity has a list of objectives and links to detailed instruction for the student and teachers notes. The lesson also offers links to an assessment rubric, the national science standards for the lesson, and additional activities.
