Bird Beak Adaption Investigation

In science, a recent investigation I undertook with my class was into bird beak adaption.

Why are they different sizes?  Shapes?  Strengths?

To find out, I put different materials in tubs: ribbons, straws, sugar and buttons (representing the birds’ food).  I gave each group a ‘beak’: pliers, spoons or chopsticks.

The children went around and tested each ‘beak’ on the material.  It was a simple but effective experiment and the pupils could clearly see why different birds had different beaks.
