Y6 Darwin’s Finches

Pupils learn about evolution and natural selection by learning about the work Charles Darwin carried out during his study of finches on the Galapagos Islands. Pupils also investigate a range of birds' beaks to see how they have evolved to suit their habitats and diets.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution
  • NaG - pupils should also appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments
  • WS - pupils might analyse the advantages and disadvantages of specific adaptations
