Kestrels Class: Battle of the Beaks

To start the science topic on evolution, the children took part in a battle of the beaks. Charles Darwin had studied the different shapes of the beaks of finches whilst on his trip to the Galapagos. Whilst there he started to formulate his theory of evolution. The children had different shaped ‘beaks’ and tried to eat a variety of food with their beak. We gathered our data as a class to find which type of bird was most successful in surviving the battle.
