Y6 Science: Bug Traps! 🪲

Y6 Science Evolution & Inheritance 

This term we have been learning and working practically to understand how animals and plants have adapted to suit their environment and how that adaption may lead to evolution. We studied the glowing spider worm that lives in pitch black caves in New Zealand. The spider worm larvae needs to be able to catch bugs to eat – how can they do this if they have no light to see when a bug flies by? We worked practically to design a trap to enable the larvae to catch it's prey, we then recorded our results in either a tally chart or a bar chart.
