As part of the Darwin 200 celebrations, ASE's Primary upd8 team has been working with The Open University's Evolution Megalab to provide free activities for school pupils.
This activity introduces pupils to Darwin's ideas on evolution by looking at variation, adaptation and distribution of banded snails. In this activity children use the correct vocabulary to describe habitats and different banded snails. Pupils take part in practical science, collecting snails and collating data and are shown how information that they collect relates to, and can be included on, the EvolutionMegalab website. www.evolutionmegalab.org
In this activity children will use the correct vocabulary to describe habitats and different banded snails (Cepaea snails - pronounced 'see-pee-ah'). Pupils take part in practical science, collecting snails and collating data and are shown how this information relates to, and can be included on, the EvolutionMegalab website www.evolutionmegalab.org which encourages children to accurately record their snail finds on a giant database to find out if and how the snail population is changing.
