Battle of the Beaks!

Class 4 have started their unit on adaptation and evolution this term. We’re looking in detail about how animals are adapted to suit their environments and why animals change over time through the process of evolution.

Today, we’ve been pretending to be a flock of birds. Groups of us had different types of beak and we examined who would be most likely to survive if we lived on an island with only one type of food. We found that some beaks were better than others at eating certain types of food. If this happened in the wild, those of us with that type of beak would be much more likely to survive!
