Concerning Critters: Adaptations & Interdependence (3-5) + CD
32 activities—296 pages
The study of animals is highly interesting and motivating to elementary students. They love to learn about the unique ways critters eat, sleep, defend themselves, and more. This book offers hands-on activities for the following life science topics:
Adaptations are characteristics of animals that allow them to meet their needs and survive in their environments. As they learn about adaptations, students will model how frogs and chameleons catch their food; experience why webbed feet make it easier to swim; explore why bats bunch up when they roost in caves; compare their range of vision to that of an owl; and create and search for camouflaged critters.
Animals rely on other animals and their environments to survive. As students explore interdependence, they will model food chains and webs; see what happens when certain animals are removed from an ecosystem; and role-play the plants and animals in a rain forest.
