Reptile and Amphibian Defense Strategies

Pupils study the stages of the Eastern newt either by collecting a live specimen or from pictures. They note the colors of the eft stage before reading the "Eastern Newt Species Account" that shows the newt's life stages, migration, and the fact that it is toxic. They study rattlesnake rattle samples and discuss how the two animals ward off predators.
