In science, we learned that the peppered moth population was changing color. Instead of being white, they were turning black all of a sudden. A scientist named Dr. Kettlewell was trying to find out why peppered moths were changing color. He suspected that pollution was causing all of this. Then he found out that it was the DNA of the moths that made the turn black. Since the forests were polluted, the moths used natural selection and changed their color from white to black.

What I learned was how the population of peppered moths was changing and what made it change. Now there are many factories using less pollution to help the peppered moth population. I predict in the future that the peppered moth population will change color and become white again because since so many companies are using less pollution, then that means that the color of the peppered moth will be white again.
