All Aboard The RHMS Beagle!

Setting sail! All aboard the HMS Beagle (Charles Darwin's ship)! The Grade 8’s used their Finch "beaks" and took a journey around the Galapagos Islands (stations) to compete for different food sources. They discovered that the variation in beak shape and size makes it easier to pick up certain types of "seeds". They investigated the concept of survival of the fittest through the experience of the finches. Charles Darwin wrote about this concept in one of the most famous documents relating to the Theory of evolution by Natural Selection entitled "The Origin of Species".  
They quickly learned that it is within our differences that we find our greatest strengths.
