Kar2ouche Natural Selection & Genetics - Digital Download
Join Darwin on his voyage of discovery.
Kar2ouche Natural Selection and Genetics starts with Darwin's voyage on HMS Beagle, as he explains his ideas about natural selection, and follows the development of these ideas as they influence other scientists’ subsequent theories on evolution and inheritance.
It looks at the controversy caused by Darwin’s theory of evolution, and discusses alternative ideas about the origin of life. Mendel presents his work and the discovery of genes, while Crick and Watson explain the sequence of discoveries that led to our modern understanding of the structure of DNA.
Modern, fictional characters are used to present various arguments for and against the use of genetic engineering, cloning and gene therapy. They also represent current debates between creationists and supporters of the theory of evolution, and students are encouraged to use the information provided to formulate their own views on these topics. They can present their ideas by using the characters and backgrounds provided in the storyboard activities, which range from straightforward storyboards to describe a sequence of events, to constructing an encyclopaedia entry or a television interview.
