Product Description
Do you teach animal adaptations? More specifically, do you teach mimicry?

In Georgia for our 3rd grade standards, we cover the following standard:
S3L1.b. Construct an explanation of how external features and adaptations (camouflage, hibernation,migration, mimicry) of animals allow them to survive in their habitat.

Mimicry is a pretty fascinating adaptation that is fun to teach. Students love to see how one animal can trick another.

I will be using this poster along with a fun science experiment to show students how one organism can resemble another (how the copy cat is 'tied 2' the original), typically to make predators believe that they are an animal the predator fears or does not like to eat.

I use the tied '2' because we are comparing 2 animals. It's just a fun play on words to help kids remember the concept of how one animal mimics another.

If you cover this same topic with your students,you might like to display it as you introduce the topic to your students. I will be projecting it as we do our activity and discuss the topic.

You could also blow this up using a poster machine if your school has one. We are lucky to have one at my school, and they are perfect for enlarging informational sheets like this.

You could also use the copy machine to shrink it down for students to glue in their notebooks.
