Evolution of Island Animals

Every year at our school, the 6th graders do a report, a year long project, (Otherwise know as YLP.) that we work on for most of the year. I chose The Evolution of Island Animals. It was really fun, and we did our presentations to the parents in April. For the first part, when I was talking about Darwin, I held up a little Darwin puppet and made him talk about himself. In this picture he is talking about the finches on the Galapagos Islands. You can see another picture of my posterboard version of Gondwanaland, (a supercontinent made up of Australia, North America, Antarctica, Africa, South America, and India.) and how I made Australia break off from it here.

    Cool. Did you do Darwin in a different voice?

    Yes. If you look in the picture you can see my mouth in a weird shape, trying to make my voice deeper.
