Become an adaptation expert!
You and your teammates are now apart of a research team of zoologists. A zoologist is a scientist that studies all about animals and how they live. Your research team has recently discovered a new species of animal and it needs to be studied right away! You will work with your teammates to develop a poster presentation to tell the rest of the Professional Zoology Board about your discovery!
You will create your own animal. You will determine what your animal looks like, the habitat in which it lives, the food it eats (prey), it's enemies (predators), and 5 ADAPTATIONS that set your animal apart from others in the habitat to help it survive.
To complete this task, your team will go through the daily activities provided to learn all about different animal adaptations. Included in each daily activity is a worksheet to fill out and keep for your research on your own animal. There are specific TEAM activities and INDIVIDUAL activities, be sure to complete both!
After going through all daily activities and included worksheets, your team will begin your project. The final product will be a POSTER including the following:
1)Name of your animal
2)Picture of your animal (drawn)
3)Description of your animal including HABITAT(where your animal lives), WHAT IT EATS, PREDATORS OF YOUR ANIMAL, FIVE INTERESTING FACTS about your animal.
4)List of 5 animal adaptations and identify each as physical, behavioral, or environmental
Be prepared to present your final product to the class. Briefly explain each part of your poster.
