Understanding the environment

Darwin spent time walking the local lanes, regularly observing the natural world, his notebook always to hand, his eyes and mind sharp to observe the unexpected. Constantly he thought about the reasons for what he saw and asked questions. This unit will encourage the use of the school grounds and beyond, and focus on Darwin’s important ideas regarding species, populations and communities of living organisms.
