Plant and animal evolution in New Zealand
We will investigate the theory of evolution. From the observations of Charles Darwin, to the discovery of fossils and finally genetic mutations, we have all the clues to track down how the evolution of species tells a story of life which spans over billions of years.
We'll learn to group plants, animals, and other living things into science-based classifications.
We'll also explore how the groups of living things we have in the world have changed over long periods of time and appreciate that some living things in New Zealand are quite different from living things in other areas of the world.
