Education Pack: Seeds and Fruits - Adaptation *suitable for home learning*
Aimed at primary learners, this resource aims to develop an understanding of seed dispersal and the adaptation of bird beaks related to food choice. It is designed for use when visiting a wildlife area and links to the topic areas of plant life-cycles and interdependence and adaptation.
The materials, produced by OPAL (Open Air Laboratories), contain instructions on running the activities, a checklist of equipment required, and worksheets.
The activities are:
Squirrel hunt - look at how plants use animals and birds to help them disperse their seeds to grow more plants in new places.
Berry squishing - collect berries, identify them and explore the seeds different berries contain.
Best beak - make predictions about which beak will be the best shape for picking up different kinds of food and match the beak shape to food eaten.
