A Model for Natural Selection- Spaghetti Worms

This A Model for Natural Selection- Spaghetti Worms lesson plan also includes:

Does the early bird really get the worm? If so, which color of worm does it prefer? In an exciting and easy week-long field investigation, young field biologists set up a one square meter feeding area for birds. If you have a webcam, learners can observe from inside the classroom. Different colored spaghetti (prepared with food coloring) is cut into worm sizes and placed in the feeding area. Each day, your budding zoologists will make observations and record data; they will gain new insight into not only the eating habits of local fauna, but also develop a deeper understanding of natural selection.
