PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource about Charles Darwin is an informational reading and writing unit for upper middle school and high school students. Please note that this is a biographical unit that does not emphasize on the scientific aspects of his findings, but rather on his life and accomplishments. It would be a great resource for a Science, English, or History class.

The four reading passages cover:
--- Darwin’s family background and childhood up and including his going into a private school at the age of 9;
--- His education (including his years at university) and his leaving on the Beagle voyage in 1831;
--- The actual voyage of the Beagle and what Darwin accomplished during that time;
--- His later years back in Britain and the publication of On the Origin of Species.

--- All four of the biographical passages have questions (comprehension and opinion-generating) on the right side of the page - the texts and the accompanying questions can therefore be used in class as bellringer activities.

--- Each passage also has a “Language Use” activity and/or a short writing assignment.

--- The resource also includes a vocabulary quiz and rounding off the resource is a multiple-choice quiz based on the four texts.

--- All student work pages are accompanied by an answer key.
