This 29 slide PowerPoint presentation covers 7 basic questions about Darwin's voyage and theory.
The focus is on Charles Darwin's observations during his travels on the Beagle, particularly at the Galapagos Islands. The goal is to provide the background necessary for Darwin's thinking of the theory of evolution by natural selection. These concepts would be further detailed at a later time. Adaptations are also introduced here, and how they are important for survival.
Simple and easy to use. Can be used with Cornell notes.
