Evolving Butterflies

In Science, Year 6 are learning about evolution. This week we looked at how animals adapt to their habitats. Mrs Wilson hid different coloured paper butterflies in a hedge. The children had to measure the distance they could spot the different colours from. We returned to the classroom to draw graphs of our findings. We then calculated the mean distance for each colour. It turns out that the easiest colour to spot was red. The hardest to spot and best camouflaged were the green and orange.
