Inventors and Scientists: Charles Darwin Synopsis: Before the nineteenth century, scholars generally assumed that living organisms remained as they were created, that they never changed. Charles Darwin shattered this idea by providing evidence that species do change over time, in a process he called "natural selection." Setting Out To Sea Charles Robert Darwin was born on the same day in 1809 that Abraham Lincoln was born. Both of these men helped reshape the way we look at the human race. Darwin was the fifth of six children. Darwin’s father steered him first into medicine, then into the ministry, but Darwin had wanted to become a naturalist. At The Galápagos Islands Among the places that Darwin visited were the Galápagos Islands, a unique set of 14 islands about 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, on the western side of South America. When he returned to England, Darwin showed his finches to expert ornithologists (biologists specializing in birds). Darwin’s Key Idea Darwin did not rush to share his idea.

ABC Match Learning to recognize letters is integral to early literacy. But how can you keep your students practicing until they are fluent? The ABC Match game meets this challenge by offering students the chance to match initial letters with pictures while also using their memory skills to remember which cards are where. Students work their way through three increasingly difficult levels, each with more pairs of cards. The game offers two modes of play, one timed and one not, as well as the option to hear the names of all the pictures. For additional ideas on how to use this game outside the classroom, see ABC Match in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section. Grades K – 2 | Lesson Plan | Standard Lesson A is for Apple: Building Letter-Recognition Fluency Students apply and build their knowledge of letters and letter sounds as they play games and interact with letters online, creating their own ABC book as a final activity.
