Year 6 – The theory of evolution

Linked to the Cornerstones Curriculum Year 6 topic, Darwin's Delights, this video serves as a great introduction to the theory of evolution, and to Charles Darwin himself.

Watch the video below or click to view the video on YouTube.

We put the video together using a fantastic app called Videoscribe. Apart from the pictures of Darwin’s own drawings, we used images and effects already built into the app.

If you want to try making this type of video yourself, Videoscribe is easy to pick up and a great way to explain concepts and engage children. You can download a free trial from the Videoscribe website.
