Product Description

Students work collaboratively to discuss how the structure and function of different species help them to survive in their ecosystems. This set of 24 adaptations task cards asks open-ended questions and was created to help develop critical thinking skills and deepen understanding of the structural adaptations and behavioral adaptations of both plants and animals. This is a fantastic resource to facilitate a collaborative learning environment where students support the learning of their peers.

We have differentiated the level of difficulty in the discussion prompts so that you can use them with all learners in your classroom. You can meet a student’s needs by ensuring they engage with certain cards and not others.
