This week we finished our work on evolution and inheritance. We looked at selective and cross breeding and put pictures in different parts of a Carroll diagram to show the parents and offspring. Some were quite obvious (e.g. the Labrador and poodle parents and the Labradoodle offspring) but some were strange such as the Wild Mustard Plant parent and the broccoli offspring!
We then went back to the original vocabulary list that we started with and the children could then see what they have learnt. Some of the progress was amazing!
We finished with a fun creative activity where the children had to create their own creature with adaptive traits that could withstand extreme cold, camouflage in the environment, hunt for its own fish and meat, defend itself against predators and live in an ice hole. We had some amazing creatures!
