2 Darwin and natural selection
In this unit, we describe the theory of evolution by natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin in his book, first published in 1859, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. We will look at natural selection as Darwin did, taking inheritance for granted, but ignoring the mechanisms underlying it.

How To Make a Paper Hover Aircraft (Origami)
This is a rare and simple method to make a space shuttle model in 2 minutes.  This is simple enough for most students to make their own and does not take a lot of time.  In the video, you can tell that a kid is making the one being shown.  It is visual only, they do not tell the steps as they make it, but it is easy enough to do and can be paused after each fold for students to do their own.
