Nature vs. Nurture
Biology Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Science Maniacs

This song is available on Science Maniacs: Life Science.

Nature versus nurture?
It is really not a fight
Genetics or environment? 
It takes both to get behavior right

Heredity with experience will determine temperament
Why do we act the way we do?
Its not one or the other, it’s a combination of the two

A spider makes her web so creatively
They do it from birth so perfectly
But they need to make it fit into their environment
They modify the plan through their experience

Genes provide a blueprint but spiders must adjust
To the environment to make a web they can trust
Nature vs. nurture -- its only when the 2 combine
That the behavior of the spider will help the spider survive


A turtle living in the deep blue sea
Will find a place to lay her eggs secretly
Genetics will determine the way she builds her nest
But environment determines which place will be the best

And so she checks out the beach carefully
She’ll only lay her eggs if its predator free
Genetics tell her how but environment tells her when
If the beach does not seem safe, she’ll wait and try again
