Year 6 Inheritance and Adaptation Science Day
Y6 Science Day: Inheritance and evolution
Year 6 has a fantastic Science day learning all about inheritance through cartoon characters, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, adaptation through the peppered moth story and an investigation based on Darwin's study of finches beaks on the Galapagos Islands. Children used different tools to represent different beaks and used them to collect 'food sources'. They formed a hypothesis, collected results and wrote their conclusions of the investigation.
