Our Animal Adaptations lesson plan explores the various adaptations animal use for survival. During this lesson, students are asked to work in pairs to create a “new” animal, with its own adaptations for survival, and prepare a presentation that introduces their creation to the class, strengthening their public speaking skills and utilizing their creativity. Students are also asked to identify the adaptations that different animals have, including the type of adaptation, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and describe various animal adaptations used for survival in the environment.
