PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This great animal adaptation experiment with linked QR research is perfect for any classroom! Do your students wonder how ducks float and stay dry even though they live near and on water? This experiment shows how ducks use a gland they have to keep oil on their feathers.

The research page has a linked QR code to help students research before the experiment. Incorporating technology in an easy way! This awesome experiment really showcases the scientific method for students as well which is very important. This is a NGSS standard for 3rd and 4th grade adaptation and how animals survive in their environment.

Premise of experiment: paint one duck with oil then water, paint one duck with water and watch to see how the "feathers" duck papers react. The water gets absorbed and the water pools on the oil feather and will even roll off when lifted upright.

Extremely low cost and very little prep = perfect for the classroom and highlighting scientific method.

Included in the pack:
-directions for setup
-directions for experiment
-6 pg. flip book (older student version - all blank)
- 6 pg flip book (younger version - question, variables, and part of hypothesis filled out)
- duck pictures to print

Your students will love experimenting and learning all about the scientific method with this great flip book! It is a big concept to know and this will lead students through all the steps and they can get practice.
