Building Blocks of Biology
A 5-lesson (approx 5-10 hours teaching time) programme introducing the evolution of Life on Earth from the 1st microbial cells. We focus on developing and engaging children in understanding the building blocks of life, i.e. 3 basic cell types: Bacterial, Animal and Plant Cells. We explore their structure, function, incredible diversity, and how most life on Earth is “built” from these cells. Then we have viruses - we all know a bit more about one of those than we would like at the moment! So we will look at the broader context of viruses in the world.
