A-D-A-P-T, adapt! A-D-A-P-T, adapt! Animal Adaptations Plants and animals have adaptations in their structures
or behavior that may improve their chance for survival. Many animals have unique structures to help them reproduce themselves in their environment.
Snails for example, lay eggs that hatch into tadpoles.
Snakes are interesting because some species lay eggs that hatch into tiny snakes whereas other species of snake are born alive, like people. Plants and animals have adaptations in their structures
or behavior that may improve their chance for survival. Animals have developed body parts or structures to survive in their environment.
Snails, frogs, and snakes have unique anatomical structures to survive.
For example, snails have a belly foot to glide along. Frogs have webbed feet to swim fast. Snakes are carnivores—they eat other animals. They have specialized tongues to sense their prey. Context
This is a 3rd grade pull out ESL class in a public elementary school. There are three girls, all Hispanic, and two boys, one Hispanic and one Korean.
