How Size Shapes Animals

Students investigate how size affects large and small animals differently. In this animal lesson plan, students determine how size affects different animals by constructing their own animal out of marshmallows. Once students create their animals, they focus on the concept of how an animal's surface area, or skin, affects their body temperature. An illustrated chart of various animals' sizes and differences is included.
