KS3/4 Science - Teaching Evolution

Description

Caroline Molyneux, head of science at Balshaw CE High School uses several innovative methods of delivering the KS4 curriculum about Darwin and the Theory of Evolution.

Caroline explores evolution with hands on techniques such as making pupils dress up as gorillas, and explaining the evolution of Galapagos Finches by using kitchen implements to pick up fruit and nuts.

Caroline encourages a heated debate on evolutionary thinking versus creationism, in which the school chaplain is invited to provide guidance to the creationist approach.

This programme shows how Caroline's approach allows for religious beliefs within the classroom to be catered for, whilst still effectively delivering the curriculum.
