This activity was designed to accompany a trip to the zoo however the zoo is not necessary to complete the activity. Students will research and investigate similarities and differences between animals in the same biome and those in differing biomes in order to make inferences about adaptations. This activity takes them through limiting factors, the fossil record, adaptations, predator/prey relationships, and much more. Students can either use FlipGrid to turn in the assignments or simply record their answers on the paper. My students did this activity at the Houston Zoo and they loved it!
