Evolution

We have started a new science topic about evolution and inheritance. We completed a pre-topic ‘assessment’ based on what the children knew/thought they knew about the associated vocabulary. We will return to this at the end of the topic.

Last week we focused on the scientific aspect of inheritance and how offspring inherit certain characteristics from their parents.

This week we have been looking at the scientific aspect of adaptation (and how inheritance and adaptation cause variation). The children matched up some living things with their habitats and then had to find one or two of its adaptive traits. I attach the sheets so parents can have a go themselves! Which ones were obvious and which ones have surprised you?
