This survey, aimed at primary level, looks at the identification and classification of the banded snail, their biological variation and how this may be an adaptation to the habitat in which the snails live. It links to the topics of living things and their habitats and evolution and inheritance. The resource may be adapted for use with different age groups - younger children may be introduced in the idea of biological variation, whereas older children may be introduced to the idea of the inheritance of variation. The resource includes detailed sheets on how to identify and classify the snails from their observable features, a recording sheet, background teachers' notes on running the activity and technical notes on the genetics of Cepaea. This resource has been produced by Evolution Megalab and links to the following resources: Snail Hunt (Key Stage 1), Snail Activities (Key Stage 1), Snail Space (Key Stage 2), Professor Steve Jones: Variation, Evolution and Inheritance.
