This week in science, UKS2 designed and completed a science experiment based around Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’. After researching Darwin’s explorations on the Galapagos Islands, the children were challenged to design an experiment that investigated the beaks of finches, and how they are adapted to different diets. They were each given a different foodstuff, and explored which of their ‘beak’ mechanisms was best suited to picking up each type of food. Afterwards, they discussed their findings and developed their own theories around adaptation.
