Transcript of Plant and Animal Adaptations

Essential Questions
How did these habitats get recognized and split into these five regions?
What are ways that plants adapt in order to survive in their environment?
How do animals rely on their adaptations in order to survive in their habitat?
Can a habitat make you adapt in more than one way? If a habitat changes, how will this affect the organism’s adaptations that are living in that habitat?
What adaptations do I have in order to survive in my habitat?

Standards
S3L1
. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat.
a. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there.
b. Identify features of green plants that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.
c. Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.
d. Explain what will happen to an organism if the habitat is changed.

MCC.3.OA.8
Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
MCC. 3.MD.1
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.

SS3G1
The student will locate major topographical features.

Road Trip Through the Georgia Regions
The Governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal, has realized a decline in tourism. He is calling on you to help attract more tourist to his state. In order for you to tell people about this wonderful state, you must first learn about all that it has to offer.
Once you have completed your individual tasks, you will create a design challenge of a Georgia habitat that you would suggest for the tourist to visit.
Make sure to pay attention during the smart board activity because you will be identifying and labeling the Georgia regions on your own Georgia map.
