Camouflage Experiment

Posted 15th June 2022

By A Year 6 Child

Year 6 did a science experiment where they hid paper moths around school. It was an experiment to see how long a camouflaged moth would last compare to a non-camouflaged moth. The camouflaged moths lasted longer than the non-camouflaged moths. The camouflaged moths lasted longer because they were more suited to their surroundings and predators would not see them as easily. The non- camouflaged ones that were not suited  to their surroundings were taken by predators because they stood out and were easier to spot. Some moths hidden in school have still not been found because they are camouflaged so well.
