Product Description
This activity is meant to be completed during or after a study of animal adaptations.

This is a fun activity, enjoyed by students and parents. The students take a field trip to a local zoo and go on a scavenger hunt looking for specific animals. This requires a combination of logic and higher-order thinking skills. The students have clues to help them identify animals by their adaptations, and the students are then required to give additional examples of adaptation. I have used the activity with fifth graders, but it could be easily adapted to other grade levels. I also have the scavenger hunt set up with twelve animals from the Fort Worth Zoo, but again, this could be easily adapted to your local zoo.

I would be more than happy to help you come up with adaptations specific to your zoo. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

Thanks for looking!
