Beak of the Finch Lab- MYP/NGSS
Students use different tools (or "beaks") to pick up food items in 20seconds. The data is recorded in a chart and graphed so patterns can be observed. Students learn about natural selection and adaptations. I love doing this lab at the beginning of the unit. Kids love it- it is incredibly engaging.
