This project is a great way for students to apply their knowledge of biomes and adaptations!
Each student researches an animal, the biome it currently lives in, and the structural and behavioural adaptations it currently has. Then they use their imagination and logic to imagine what new adaptations the animal would develop if it moved to a different biome. How would an arctic fox change if it lived in the desert? What would a woodpecker need to do differently to survive in the tundra? What would a camel look like after several years in a boreal forest?
Students will type or write a one-page report and create a wonderful image of their newly-adapted animal. I like to put these together into an interesting class book!
This item includes:
- Lesson ideas, links and videos to teach students about biomes and structural and behavioural adaptations.
- A graphic organizer for students to take notes as they complete research.
- A rubric to assess the final project.
- A title page for your completed class book.
