Darwin: The Man Behind the Theory of Evolution

7th Grade Life Science

Mr. P


Charles darwin the youth

Charles Darwin: The Youth

  • He was born Feb. 12 1809 in England. He was the son of a well-known physician.

  • Darwin was kicked out of school

    because of his bad grades

Charles darwin the man

Charles Darwin: The Man

  • He dropped out of medical school because he could not stand the sight of blood

  • He then pursued a life in the Church, but did not find it interesting

  • He became interested in studying beetles and reading scientific findings


Charles darwin the scientist

Charles Darwin: The scientist

  • Charles Darwin sailed aboard the HMS Beagle. He was the naturalist aboard the ship, which sailed around the world.

  • He was horribly sea sick the entire trip

  • He stopped anywhere he could and made amazing discoveries

  • Darwin also looked at pigeon breeding, which is a form of Selective Breeding and is the basis for how we breed dogs.

Charles darwin the legacy

Charles Darwin: The Legacy

  • Darwin’s theory of natural selection is the basis for modern biology and is the foundation of how we study nature.

    REMEMBER:

    Evolution is CHANGE OVER TIME


The inspiration

The inspiration

  • While in the Galapagos, Darwin saw that the tortoises showed variationof characteristics.


The inspiration1

The inspiration

  • Darwin saw that animals adaptedto their environment in the Galapagos.


The theory

The Theory

  • Natural Selection is the process for which individuals withtraits that are better suited for the environment are more likely to survivelonger and reproducemore successfully than those individuals without these traits


Natural selectio n

Natural Selection

  • Adaptations are the inherited traitsthat increase an organism’s chance of surviving and reproducingin a particular environment.


The main outcome

The main outcome….

  • The outcome of natural selection is diversityof life
