Animal Adaptations

Traveling Programs are temporarily unavailable. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with public health guidance, the Museum will not be offering Traveling Programs for the remainder of calendar year 2020. The Museum will make a decision about Traveling Programs reservations for January – June 2021 later this calendar year. The Museum of Science is committed to supporting students and educators. Resources can be found at MOS at Home. More to come soon!

What are adaptations, and where do they come from? Students learn about natural selection and observe the adaptations of three live animals, as well as discuss the driving environmental forces behind those traits. After observing the live animals, students participate in a hands-on activity: they will use models to investigate the structures of animal skulls and draw conclusions about how the animals may have lived.
