    Greek students have read Kathryn Lasky's book "One beetle too many" . The book describes Darwin's life, his voyage on the Beagle, his observations and theory.

    "From the time Charles Darwin was a boy, he was happiest when he was out alone collecting specimens (especially beetles). And despite his father's efforts to turn young Darwin — a poor student — into a doctor or clergyman, the born naturalist jumped instead at the chance to sail around South America, observing and collecting flora and fauna all the way. In a clear, engaging narration, Kathryn Lasky takes readers along on Darwin's journey, from his discovery of seashells on mountaintops that revealed geological changes to his observations of variations in plants and animals, suggesting that all living things are evolving over time." (Google books review)

    They have also studied Darwin's biography using another book. "Charles Darwin" by Ann Fullick from the book series "Groundbreakers"


    After reading the books, in groups, in class, the children used the TitanPad below in turns and made notes about Darwin's observations.
