Natural Selection

Did people evolve from monkeys? Not really, but we did have a common ancestor! This BrainPOP UK movie explains how Charles Darwin, the English scientist, made an amazing discovery and showed how environmental pressures have caused most living things to better adapt to their surroundings by slowly mutating. This theory of Natural Selection is also known as ‘Survival of the Fittest’. In this animated, educational movie find out about the finches Darwin found in the Galapagos, how they helped shape his theory and about his book The Origin of Species. So how fit are you?
