Year 6 Visit to Chester Zoo

Date: 11th Feb 2016 @ 2:56pm

What is evolution? How do we know that evolution happens?

Now that evolution is on the Key Stage 2 curriculum, year 6 decided the zoo was the perfect place to start learning. With a fantastic collection of artefacts and 20,000 animals which have evolved to live in different habitats they were able to bring the topic alive with living examples of evolution.

They also looked at variation, natural selection and how long it takes for species to evolve.

My favourite animal was possibly the penguins: they snuck up in the water and banged on the glass- it was actually quite frightening! 👌🐧💦
