This set of 32 “Animal Adaptations Task Cards” gets kids thinking about how animals are adapted for their environment. Several of these animal adaptation task cards match key concepts and vocabulary that are part of many states’ curriculum standards.
The first 28 animal adaptation task cards use a multiple choice format. The last 4 cards are extended response questions, which require students to provide a written response similar to the format of state assessment items about animal adaptations. I have included a set of blank task cards to allow you to create your own questions about animal adaptations if needed.
A full answer key is included. The student‐friendly answer document allows you or your students to correct their responses quickly and easily.
You may want to work through a few task cards per day as a whole class, creating discussions about animal adaptations. These animal adaptations task cards also work well with literacy centers, work stations, partner activities, or as part of a whole class activity like Scoot.
The task cards may be printed in color or grayscale format. They look best when printed on a high quality color laser printer. They can be laminated and used year after year with no additional copying needed (except for answer forms). You may also wish to use a ring or fastener to keep the cards attached as a set.
