Science, by its nature, continues to change, and teachers need the current view to keep children in sync with the greater academic world. This presentation of biology updates will include guidelines for classroom materials and explore misconceptions and important omissions in traditional materials—including the Timeline of Life—to help children move forward without having to “unlearn” outdated ideas.
