Product Description
Students learn about "Survival of the Fittest" and adaptations first hand through this activity by roleplaying as birds with different styles of beaks. Using different tools to represent their beak style, students attempt to collect as much food as they can in a given time. Students can record their results after each trial, eventually coming to the conclusion that some beak styles are more equipped to acquire certain foods. It is a fun and enjoyable activity for students as anything involving food and competition is always a good lesson.

I created this lesson based off of an activity that I read on a science blog, and input some edits of my own. It was implemented in a 4th grade science classroom where we had science notebooks that students recorded their warmup and essential question to each activity daily during this unit. This lesson is aligned for about an hour.

The lesson is completed with time intervals, a warm-up, a step by step breakdown of the lesson, and a formative assessment. I've aligned this lesson with Maryland State Curriculum Standards as well.
