Students study the physical and behavioral adaptations animals have made to their environments. In this animal adaptations instructional activity, students study cockroaches and pictures of animal body parts to learn about adaptions to animals. Students complete animal fact sheets after researching the adaptations an animal has made and present their findings to their class. Students complete their own biome illustration to depict an animal and its adaptations.
An extensive investigation of the Earth's climate changes awaits your environmental science classes. This top-notch presentation begins by looking at the history of Earth's climate and then predicts the impact on each major terrestrial biome. Information included is comprehensive, easy to read, and includes an array of colorful graphs, diagrams, and photos that bring this urgent topic to life.
Explore both terrestrial and aquatic biomes by viewing this PowerPoint. Details are plentiful as there are 59 slides in the collection. Unfortunately, about half of the photos are grainy. With the value of the information presented, it would probably be worth your time to replace all of the sub-quality photos so that you can use this with your early ecology learners.
Students participate in a three part unit about biomes. Part one, students research the biomes of North America and part two consists of research on zoos and a field trip to a zoo. While part three ties together the first two when students design a section of a zoo to be built in South Africa displaying animals from North America.
