PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Animal Adaptations Project: This differentiated science and writing project is a fun way to assess understanding of your study of environments/biomes and animal adaptations. Students will choose an environment and create an animal
(or adapt an existing one) to survive in the new environment.

This resource includes:
♥ lesson plans
♥ Biome anchor chart- includes desert, coral reef, Arctic tundra, and rainforest (you can use any environments/biomes for this project)
♥ planning and project pages
♥ differentiated project choices
♥ grading rubrics
♥ example of completed project

You can finish this activity in one to three class periods, depending on the time you have available. I have included a suggested lesson plan sequence for two days. Each student begins with a planning page. Completing the planning page will help students do the design work of creating their new creature and describing adaptations that help it survive.

The final project choices are differentiated. The first option has room for the completed animal drawing and paragraph all on one page. For the second option, students draw an their animal in the new environment on a full-size sheet of paper. The paragraph can be written on notebook paper or typed on the computer. This allows for more room depending on the amount of information you want students to include. Option three allows students to use an interactive whiteboard app to label and explain the adaptations. You can choose whether to have students write a paragraph in addition to using the app. This project choice would work well for students who have difficulty with writing but could explain their project. Grading rubrics are included for all three choices.
