Evolution. KS2 practical activity and resources

A primary colleague asked me how she could incorporate some practical activity when teaching evolution to Year 6. This activity models different types of bird catching a variety of prey and how their success rate might change given a different environment. It was a huge success with Year 6. The presentation sets the scene and the students experience recording results and interpreting them. The results we got from our class are included and there is a worksheet on these that can be used or adapted. There is scope for questioning the students about reliability of results and whether this is a valid way of collecting data.

Tiny Teddy Graham Natural Selection

Tiny Teddy Graham Natural Selection

Have your students learn about Natural selection through this hands-on activity. Tiny Teddies (Teddy Graham's for my American friends) are used to model two different species in a habitat. This lab is very similar to the peppered moth simulation if you are familiar with it. The best part is, as long as students wear gloves, and the experiment is not conducted in a lab, the students can eat the teddies afterwards! Included: - Tiny Teddy Selection lab sheet with instructions and tables for student results. - Question sheet.
