EVOLUTION: CREATE-A-CREATURE 

This workshop offers a fun and interactive way to introduce and model the key principles of evolution. Your class will play two curriculum-linked games in a series which allows them to create their own creatures through randomly selected adaptation features. They will then take that same creature through several ecosystems and challenging scenarios of an ever-changing world. Natural selection will mean that only the strongest will survive this evolution game! 

“The pupils didn’t feel like they were in a lesson during this workshop, as they were all improving their understanding of evolution through playing a game. A superb resource”

Ms Smith, Y6 Teacher
