Product Description
This is a unit plan on plant and animal adaptations intended to be taught to the 6th through 8th grade level over a two-week period. This unit plan addresses diversity, technology in the classroom, and accommodations/modifications. Clear learning targets are presented, and using their own voice, students are able to explain what they learned and why it is important. Finally, this unit plan uses a wide variety of teaching methods and styles, benefiting all students.

Unit Focus
The title of this life science unit is, “How a giraffe’s 20 inch tongue, a skunk flower’s stench, and human skin color are related”. The Essential Question for the unit is ‘How are plant and animal characteristics and behaviors reflections of their environment?’ Each of the daily learning targets build upon the previous one to help to answer this essential question. This scaffolding creates a comprehensive understanding of the Essential Question.

Learning Outcomes
At the conclusion of this unit, students will:
A) Comprehend the terms: adaptation, environment, organism, and inheritance.
B) Be able to identify particular plant and animal adaptations and recognize how humans have, or might, borrow these adaptations.
C) Understand that human impact on Earth can negatively impact the environment to which the organism has adapted.

This unit plan includes daily learning targets and outlined lessons. Two complete (detailed) lesson plans are included, one of which is listed for sale separately (Bird Beaks).
