bird beaks experiment for learning about animal adaptations
If you were a bird, what shape beak would you have? That depends on where you lived and what you ate. Bird beaks come in many shapes and sizes—for example, hummingbirds' thin beaks can dip deep into flowers for nectar, while pelicans' spoon-shaped bills can scoop through water to catch fish. Special beak shapes are one way birds adapt to survive in their environment. Pretend you're a bird and try getting your "bird food" with different- shaped "beaks."Which shape works best to grab which food?
