This lesson package on Physical & Behavioral Adaptations: How plants and animals adapt to increase their chances of survival - begins with a refresher on evolution and an introduction to adaptations. The lesson then moves onto Behavioral and Physical Adaptations with multiple inquiry activities built into the PowerPoint. Your kids will be encouraged to collaborate and perform a little research. This is a great time for them to take out their own devices or use classroom computers. If these aren't available, this section can be discussed as a class instead.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
