Evolution is change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next. Genes that are passed on to an organism's offspring produce the inherited traits that are the basis of evolution. From those changes in traits, new adaptations may have caused because of that and they have evolved over time.

When offspring are produced, there may be a mutation caused in their genes which might lead to a change in that species and next generation which may lead to a whole new species that looks and acts different. I believe that evolution started all with God. He created the stars, Earth, planets, animals, the Sun, the Moon, and everything we have today. When God created animals, they produced offspring and those offspring produced another generation of offspring, and they all lead up to of what is today. Charles Darwin believed that all species had evolved over time from common ancestors. Some people and scientists believe that birds evolved over time from dinosaurs, because some dinosaurs had feathers and traits that some birds have. And how some dinosaurs climbed up trees, ran, and jumped from tree to tree for their prey, they developed wings from that. There are also fossils to prove that theory. In my opinion I believe that God created everything and He has lead animals and species to develop and adapt the way they are today.
