Animal Adaptations

In this presentation, students expand their understanding of biological adaptations by observing both skulls and live animals. They see up to three live animals from different groups, place the animals in their correct classes, and learn about specific adaptations each has developed. After observing the live animals, students engage in a hands-on activity in which they become scientists and examine particular skulls to determine how the animal may have adapted. A 40-minute introductory version is available for multi-grade reservations.
