Extereme Arthropods: Exploring Evolutionary Adaptations To Polar and Temperate Deserts

Middle schoolers investigate arthropods from bothe places, creating "toolboxes" necessary for survival in extreme environments. They work in small groups to design imaginary arthropods that are able to survive in either Antarctica or Namibia. Students use evolutionary "toolboxes" to pick out appropriate adaptations for actual Namib and Antarctic arthropods, using a menu of authentic names, adaptations and photos.
