In Science, we have been learning about Charles Darwin and his voyage to the Galápagos Islands.
We know that he studied finches during his visit and that he noticed that the beaks of the finches on each island were different – they were suited to the food available.
This week we carried out an investigation to find out which were the best beaks for different kinds of food. We had scissors, spoons, pegs and tweezers to represent beak shapes and a variety of items to represent food eg match sticks.
We timed ourselves to keep the test fair, recorded our results and drew conclusions. 📋
