Biomes Survival Challenge!
The STEM group of students must first decide on a plush or plastic animal to bring to school. They must also decide on a specific biome that the animal is going to survive in. The animal they choose for this challenge may not already have adaptations suited for the chosen biome. The students must come up with at least 4 different adaptations for their animal. Using a list of materials, the group must transform their animal so it is better suited for the new environment it will survive in. The group must also create a poster that describes each adaptation and why they chose it for their animal. They have 3 days to complete this challenge.
