Friday we went outside for an activity on natural selection. Students (birds) had been swept to a new island with a new food source (beans). Variation in the birds' beaks proved that the traits for a spoon-shaped beak would be beneficial in the new environment. Over time the species would change to be best suited to their new environment.
