Key Term Topic

Who is the King/Queen of adaptation?

Children will be watching some wildlife programmes & reading books on MyON to initially immerse them in why and how animals have adapted to their environment. They will then choose which animal they believe is the king/queen of adaptation.

Following extensive research, they will be asked to present their animal in a debate in order to ascertain who is the king/queen of adaptation. Persuasion and presentation skills will be needed if they want their animal to win.

We will also be looking at Darwin and Mary Anning and what they have done for science and adaptation.
