7th grade social studies Ms. Sue please

posted by .

For a project I need to answer these questions:

1.
What is eugenics and how is it linked to Darwin’s theory of evolution?

2.
Why did the Scopes Monkey Trial occur?

I have tried researching but I cannot find a good website anywhere. I tried Wikipedia, but it wasn't helpful. Do you have any suggestions?

    "Definition of EUGENICS
    : a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed"
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/eugenics

    Darwin showed that animals mated with other animals that had the best chance to survive. They passed their successful traits on to their offspring.

    This led some people, called social darwinists, to believe that people could improve the success of individual humans by controlling human mating.

    John Scopes was a teacher in Tennessee. He broke a state law that forbade teaching about evolution.

    Eugenics is not related to evolution. Evolution is the fact that all living things change over long periods of time.
