This is the first day of a five day unit on animal adaptations. It is a complete lesson, with plans and worksheet.
Day 1 – My adaptations
- Students will explore what makes them able to survive as humans. They will look at how human adaptations are different than animal adaptations and how and why humans can live in nearly every kind of ecosystem. This is an introductory lesson that is meant to help students make personal connections to the concept and give them a framework to learn about animal adaptations. They have homework that will get them thinking about animal adaptations and give the teacher an idea of what they know and might be struggling with.
