THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THIS PRODUCT!
No Life Science unit is complete without an in-depth look at the astounding diversity of structural and behavioral adaptations organisms have to ensure their survival.
This resource contains 32 task cards for students to sort according to the type of adaptation described. I designed this product to introduce students to organisms they may already be familiar with, as well as several others that they may not have even heard of before. These unique organisms were carefully chosen to pique students’ interest in the vast diversity of organisms with which we share this amazing planet. Photos of each organism are included.
Behavioral adaptations highlighted include: hibernation, migration, brumation, aestivation, communal living, morphing and anti-predation adaptations.
Structural adaptations highlighted include: camouflage, mimicry, predation adaptations, and body structures.
Organisms highlighted include: camels, woodchucks, hummingbirds, Emperor penguins, platypus, Komodo dragons, Sawflies, Indonesian Mimic Octopus, Harp seals, Walking Stick bugs, dandelions, desert flowers, chameleons, Golden Wheel Spider, armadillos, earthworms, Massasauga rattlesnake, opossums, sea turtles, pebble toad, Green Basilisk Lizard, Venus Fly Trap, Bearded dragons, Candy crab, Lygodium Spider moth
