BBC Galapagos
Episode 2 - The Islands that Changd the World

This is another BBC nature documentary similar in quality to Planet Earth but focused entirely on the Galapagos Islands. Each episode covers a different aspect of the islands, but this worksheet focuses on the second episode entitled "The Islands that Changed the World."

This is a good movie to show while discussing Charles Darwin and how he gathered the evidence for what would become his theory of evolution. It examines some of the same animals that he observed and collected, including the famous finches, tortoises, and lizards.

Essential concepts: Evolution, natural selection, Charles Darwin, Galapagos Islands.

Answer Key: Available to teachers as part of the biology instructor resources subscription.
