This is a fun science packet that introduces the concept of animal adaptations and walks students through the steps to invent their own animal, adapted to its environment. In my class, I had students draw randomly from a list of environments (included in last page of packet) and then research the area and adapt an animal to fit. I also required my students to present their animal to the class. The packet also includes a grading sheet for presentations. However, you can modify this packet to fit your needs.
