This week in science, we all had a go at becoming evolutionary scientists! We discussed what an evolutionary scientist might do on a day-to-day basis, involving responsibilities such as fieldwork, observation, documentation and creating evolutionary theories, and examined some of the theories set out by Darwin and Wallace. In groups, we then considered the question, ‘How do anatomical observations help support the idea of natural selection?’ by researching various creatures and how they have adapted over time to suit their environments. We researched many creatures such as finches, lizards, iguanas, tortoises and beetles, looking at how some species have different features, and why this might be. Then, we presented our discoveries to another group, finding similarities and differences between our research.
