This is a choice board for students to choose from 6 different activities that help them learn about physical and behavioral adaptations of animals. It is aligned with 5th grade Science standards. The preview shows the choice board.
The choice board has activities that involve different styles of learning (creating a dance, a song, creative writing, reading, etc.). Students can choose the one they think will help them learn best and also the one they think will be the most fun for them so that they are fully engaged. My students always LOVE this activity! If time permits, you can have them choose a second activity.
Two of the activities involve a video from Discovery Education. If you don't have access to Discovery Education you could find a video on youtube about physical and behavioral adaptations.
I often allow students to work in groups or partners with others who choose the same choice as them but I don't tell them that until they make their choice because I don't want them to choose based on what their friends are choosing.
