Synopsis

Following in Darwin's Footsteps by Aileen O'Riordan, Pat Triggs

Eight key chapters cover the life of Charles Darwin, each designed to read aloud in 5 minutes for a primary school audience (5-11 year-olds). Illustrated with fun family activities and presented by the characters from The Great Plant Hunt (www.greatplanthunt.org), an RBG Kew and Wellcome Trust educational program. Themed topics range from Darwin's childhood capacity for observation and his exploration and discovery of new species on the Beagle voyage, to an accessible account of Darwin's biggest idea. Together these eight tales explain how and why Darwin became a scientist who changed the world.
