PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How does the environment affect animal and plant adaptation?

What do animals and plants do to adapt to a changed environment?

The power point shows plants and animals that have specialized adaptations. This is a great way to introduce or to review adaptations and changes in an environment. It is a high interest activity with many pictures of animals and plants to encourage engagement.

Six types of adaptation are highlighted: structural adaptations, protective coloration, mimicry, behavioral adaptations, migration, and hibernation.

Many slides begin with a question to encourage student discussion: How would a drought change an ecosystem? Why does the giraffe have such a long neck? What adaptations are needed for plants to survive in harsh environments?

A separate free item in my store gives a worksheet to accompany the power point, and a short quiz that includes a matching section and a short essay.
