How Evolution Works [11:47]

Description

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.

Discussion Questions

  • What are some of the key concepts necessary for evolution?
  • What parts of natural selection are chance and random?  What parts are not?
  • Why is diversity in a population so important?
  • Why are Darwin’s Finches a good example of natural selection?

Keywords: evolution, nature, science, evidence, natural selection, species, genetics
