Students will be assigned an animal to research. Students must research the animal's adaptations and then move the animal to a new ecosystem. Then they must research adaptations in the new ecosystem. Students will create a writing piece and 3D pop-up project about these new adaptions.
Students will need general background on ecosystems and adaptations including the difference between structural and behavioral adaptations.
