Monday 1st March 2021

Well done to those who submitted their fossil research, isn't it amazing that they can tell us about life from millions of years ago? 

For this week's learning - you need to understand the term 'adaptation'.  You need to watch the following videos and make notes in your exercise book, or in your own note book.  Your task will be explained further down the page.
