Animal Adaptations "Busy Beaks" Fun Hands On STEM Investigation Activity

This hands on “Busy Beaks” activity is a fun way for students to learn about animal adaptations. Students test four different types of “beaks” to learn how birds are adapted to their environment.

This hands on investigation includes:

A 15 slide PowerPoint presentation which can be used to teach or evaluate the students’ knowledge about the function of various bird beaks.

A “Busy Beaks” data chart which allows students record the number of items captured by each of their four beaks.

A “Busy Beaks graph form which enables students to bar graph showing their results.

A “Busy Beaks” Exit Slip which allows you to evaluate your lesson and provides meaningful feedback.

My students really enjoy this activity. I have included my instructions, but you can change specific materials and procedures to meet your needs.

Check out my animal adaptations reader's theater entitled Ranger Lox and the Three Vores.

Integrate reading and animal adaptations by having students create a pocket book!
