In science today we learnt all about Darwin’s theory of evolution and what the term ‘survival of the fittest’ really meant. We applied our knowledge to an experiment, where we looked at how the finch had adapted to its survival on various different islands. Having looked at pictures of the birds beak we investigated how well adapted each shape was to collecting the food available. We imitated the beaks using various tools which allowed us to create the same movement: tweezers, chop sticks, pegs etc. We had great fun testing these beaks out and concluded that the smaller the beak the smaller and weaker the type of food.
