Who is the King or Queen of Adaptation?

We will be visiting the museum to look at inheritance and adaptation – meeting Mary Anning and handling ancient skulls to compare how they have changed over the centuries. We will also be looking at and researching how animals have adapted to their environment, which will lead to a balloon debate to ascertain who is the king or queen of adaptation.
