During this activity, students will act out the adaptations of a particular animal. This activity will provide the students with a kinesthetic way to understand adaptations. Working in a group will provide a time for collaboration and the sharing of ideas.
Extension activities also included.
S4.B.1.1.2 Compare similar functions of external characteristics of organisms (e.g., anatomical characteristics: appendages, type of covering, body segments).
S4.B.2.1.1 Identify characteristics for plant and animal survival in different environments (e.g., wetland, tundra, desert, prairie, deep ocean, forest).
S4.B.2.1.2 Explain how specific adaptations can help a living organism survive (e.g., protective coloration, mimicry, leaf size and shapes, ability to catch or retain water).
