Turn your classroom into different environments and let your students discover the animals that live there and their adaptations
One of my favourite lessons with students engaged and learning from the first minute. I've taught this many times and each time it's been a success.
PPT includes student discussion exercises on 'what is an environment, habitat and adaptation?' along with an activity whereby you can transform your classroom into different habitats. Group the animal fact cards into Ocean, Desert, Rainforest and Arctic and place these onto different tables. Student then go around the classroom investigating the habitat, the organisms that live there and their adaptations.
Throughout the lesson they can fill in their worksheet as they go.
