There’s also a version for younger kids, Evolution: The Beginning, that we’ve enjoyed. Same basic theory from what I’ve read about the two games, just less complicated for the Beginning version. And yes, I agree that it absolutely bears mentioning to the small people that evolution happens via natural selection / survival of the fittest, as opposed to consciously picking and choosing traits.
Thanks so much for posting this! Although I didn’t find the flowchart to be confusing, getting all those “extras” located and noted so they can be used at the appropriate time can be a little daunting. My current method is sticky notes in the book indicating what other content (like BrainPop) I had found that tied in to that particular lesson, but… ugh. So cluttered-looking and just driving me crazy. Obviously, this linked document is a much more efficient way of going about things, not to mention the fact that I had forgotten that Discovery Education even existed.
That being said, do you know if “____” is going to be updating the document to include the lessons at the end of the book? Either way, it’s a great framework that can be easily filled out and completed as we go. This scattered baby-brain momma is forever grateful for the shared resource, if you’re reading this. 🙂
