508 This prezi is intended as a learning center on the
topic of animal adaptations. Included in the activity
are videos and images depicting examples of 4 types
of adaptations. Additionally, the prezi contain links
to interactive sites and instructions for a culminating project. Arizona State Standards:

G4.4S.C4.PO2 Give examples of adaptations that allow plants and animals to survive:

*mutualism Essential Questions:

What is an adaptation?

How do adaptations help
animals survive in their
environment? Imagine This: You are a scientist and must pack for an expedition to Antarctica. What clothing
would you take with you? Humans can adjust to their
environment by changing the clothes
they wear. An animal has special features or characteristics that help
it survive in its natural habitat.
These are called adaptations. Physical Adaptations Physical adaptations are body parts or body coverings
that help animals survive in their environment. Examples: Giraffe's long neck Turtle's hard shell Tiger's sharp teeth and claws Porcupine's quills Watch this video on an
elephant's trunk. How does the trunk
help the elephant
survive in its
environment? Camouflage Camouflage is a method
of concealment that allows an animal
to blend into its environment. Can you tell what creatures
are hiding in the images below? Mimicry Mimicry is an
animal's ability
to imitate
organism. Mutualism Mutualism occurs
when two or more organisms
from different species rely on
one another for food or
protection. How do the animals
in these video clips
rely on one another? Hippo and Fish Crocodile and Plover Monarch and
Vicery Butterfly King and
Coral Snake http://www.harcourtschool.com/activity/camouflage/camouflage.html Check out this interactive
website on camouflage! http://www.ecokids.ca/pub/eco_info/topics/climate/adaptations/index.cfm How fast can you match up
animals' adaptations?
