This video uses amazing infographics, great music, and a good slow pace to explain just what evolution is and why it’s important. The video starts with discussing what a ‘species’ is. It then discusses uniqueness, DNA, heredity, mutations, and natural selection. The video ends by discussing human evolution. Although not graphic, the video shows death and a comedic, censored mating scene between cartoon animals, so please watch the video yourself to judge appropriateness.
