Animal Adaptations: Physical or Behavioral

As I taught animals and their habitats, I realized that my students are not learning enough about animal adaptations and the vocabulary that goes along with it. Here is a four paged lesson/practice on identifying adaptations as physical or behavioral. There are 30 examples of animal adaptations from a variety of habitats around the world, along with two short answer questions that require students to synthesize the information they are gaining.

*Answer key included for the 30 examples.




Animal Adaptations: Body Parts

For this activity, there should be 5 groups. Each student will get a booklet to document their favorite animal of the set and its adaptation. Groups will explore the 8 animals at their table and then rotate on to the next group. The animal cards should be sorted before hand so that students are studying one body part at a time.

This resource includes a total of 40 animal cards. Each animal card has a picture of the animal as well as a short description of its adaptation. The adaptations can be sorted into Eyes, Ears, Noses, Teeth, and Legs.

Animals Included: Owl (x2), Gecko, Hippopotamus, Gharial, Chameleon, Butterfly, Goat, Frog (x2), Star-Nosed Mole, Proboscis Monkey, Elephant Nose Fish, Elephant (x2), Bear, Elephant Seal, Anteater, Rhinoceros, Fennec Fox, Drum Fish, Bat, Dog, Rabbit, Sea Lion, Babirusa, Payara Fish, Rattlesnake, Narwhal, Goosander, Baleen Whale, Rabbit, Crocodile, Maned Wolf, Sunda Flying Lemur, Crab, Platypus, Eagle, Duck, Kangaroo

I have also included the booklet for students to write their observations in. Students will write the animal name, draw a picture, retell its adaptation, and tell why it is important for its survival.

Prepare animal cards by printing them out and laminating. (Optional) You will need one set for the activity.

Prepare animal book by printing and folding.

Create five stations so that students can explore a variety of adaptations. Title each group: Eyes, Ears, Nose, Teeth, and Legs.

Have students explore the adaptations by rotating from group to group. They should explore all animals and choose one to document in their booklet.

Use the booklet as an assessment for the activity.




Animal Adaptations: Camouflage

Concealing Coloration, Disruptive Coloration, Disguise, & Mimicry

Are you teaching your students the four types of camouflage? It is so hard to find good examples of animal camouflage. This resource provides your students with a short informational text so that they understand what each type of camouflage means. There are six animal examples for each type of camouflage. (Mimicry has three animals and the animals that they mimic.)

Once you cut out and laminate the animal pictures, students can sort the images in groups, with a partner, or independently. My students really understood the vocabulary because there were many images and they had more time to explore and think than if they were watching an animal video.



Animal Teeth Writing:

After I teeth all of the adaptation lessons, I read the book titled: What If You Had Animal Teeth? Then I have students choose their animal mouth and create a new species with it. Their writing will tell how their animal adaptations helps it to survive. Created animals can be make-believe.


Food Chains:

This activity has been my most popular of the set. Students rotate to different habitats and create food chains out of the 6 animals included. There are a total of 6 habitats and 36 animals/plants.
