Evolution and Inheritance

We tried out a modelling activity to investigate inheritance.  We used a variety of different liquorice allsorts and chose one to represent the ‘male’ and one to represent the ‘female’.  We thought about the key features of each sweet and then had to select one, which could be the ‘offspring’ of these.  This helped us to explore the idea that characteristics and traits are passed down from parent to offspring, but normally offspring vary and are not identical.  We had to justify and reason for our choices.
