This is a great Animal Adaptation research report that my students loved!
Each student chooses an animal (my class chose from a list of NYS animals because we are learning about NYS). We went to the library to take notes on each student's animal adaptations. Note pages included. Then, students had to write an informational paragraph and create a poster or PowerPoint to present each animal.
Included in the 4 page Word Document:
Two note pages
Rubric for students to follow
Part of the Directions Sheet: (Much neater and organized on the file!!)
All animals have bodies (structures) and behaviors that let them survive in the wild. These structures and behaviors are called adaptations. Every part of an animal’s body is there for a reason. In this project, you will research one animal of your choice. You will create a poster or PowerPoint that shows a picture of the animal and how the animal’s adaptations help it survive.
You will do the research to learn more about your animal’s adaptations in the library. You may also use the Internet at home to find more information. As you look at pictures and read about your animal, remember to look at its body (structures) and how it behaves to see how it survives in in the wild.
Most adaptations help animals to:
- get the food they need to survive - sense danger - hide from predators or prey
- get shelter - reproduce - escape from or fight enemies - migrate as the seasons change
1. Research your animal in the library and take notes (on the provided note pages) of at least five adaptations.
You may also find information from other books or the Internet at home.
2. Write a complete paragraph using your notes (topic sentence, details, conclusion). It should include all of
the adaptations you learned about (what they each are and how they help the animal). This complete
paragraph should be written on a piece of loose leaf paper, with your name and title.
3. Create a poster OR PowerPoint about your animal and its adaptations:
Poster: On a piece of large construction paper or poster, write the title.........(and goes on)
Enjoy! My class loved this project :)
