Bird Beaks

Friday 04 February 2022

This week’s Science lesson saw us learning about natural selection and adaptation. Charles Darwin came up with the idea of natural selection and the Theory of Evolution whilst travelling the world on the HMS Beagle.

He noticed how different birds beaks were adapted to suit the food that was available in a habitat. He also deduced that over time species with traits that helped them survive would be the ones who were naturally selected.

What does this mean for us? Well, we used different tools e.g tweezers, tongs etc to simulate birds beaks and found out what kind of food each could eat.
