Product Description
This resource contains five informational reading passages about animal adaptations. It was made for the NGSS 3-LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. It covers the following animals in the the following ecosystems:

Collared Lizard - desert
Clownfish - ocean
Arctic Fox - arctic tundra
Blue Heron - wetlands
Yellow Jacket - temperate forest

The passages were written with third graders in mind, but the information is very interesting and complex and would be useful for upper grades as well. Even I learned things while researching the adaptations!
There is a tips sheet for teachers and two recording sheets (differentiated) for students on which they can note the adaptations that their given animal has in order to survive in its ecosystem.
