Charles Darwin and his
Theory of Evolution
Personal Information





He was born on February
12th, 1809, in England

Darwin also visited
some Spanish ruins and
saw many different
geological formations,
fossil variations and live
organisms

Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

1. Variation -There are
differences in every
population

Individuals in a particular
species are not identical

Differences make it easier for
that individual to survive
long enough to produce more
offspring

For example, some may have
different coloured fur or skin
so that they are less visible

If these individuals mate
with each other, they will
pass on the advantage to
their offspring

Gradually more and more of that species will have the different coloured fur

The species will have changed, or evolved

2. CompetitionOrganisms (plants
and animals) fight for
food

3. OffspringOrganisms have more
babies than can
survive

4. Genetics- Organisms pass traits on to their babies

5. Natural Selection- Those organisms with the most
beneficial traits are more likely to survive and
reproduce
“the survival of the fittest”
In Conclusion



Darwin was a British
scientist
He spent five years on a
boat called the HMS
Beagle doing research on
plants and animals
He created the idea of
Natural Selection and the
Theory of Evolution
