Most of us take Darwin's ideas of natural selection, and the theory that all life is in a constant state of change, for granted - though they caused a right old rumpus back in 1859! This workshop uses drama techniques to introduce pupils to two different theories of evolution - then challenges them to design their own creatures, able to thrive in some changing environments. They'll then produce short "documentaries" introducing the world to their newly-discovered animals - and support each other through peer evaluation.
