On Monday 18th September we visited Erasmus Darwin Museum to learn about Evolution. We had a fantastic morning hearing all about different animals and plants and how they have evolved and adapted to the environment of the Galapagos Islands. We also learned a little bit about Charles Darwin's trip to the island in the 1030's that inspired his work in the field of evolution.
