Science

Humans can live all over the world.  This is because we are able to wear clothes and build houses suited to different conditions - hot or cold climates.  Most plants and animals can only live in certain environments - they can't change their clothes!

To help them survive in their habitat, living things have developed special features to suit the place they live;  these help them survive.

For example:

Squirrels have long claws for gripping as they climb.

Birds have hollow bones to make them lighter.

Otters have webbed feet to help them move easily in water.

How do animals adapt to their environment?

 

Choose 2 different animals and explain how they have adapted to their environment.  You can present your learning however you want - a poster, a report, a video ...  These will look great on our class page and will help others in their understanding.

 

Challenge:  What is the impact humans have on animals living in different environments?  Think Global Warming.
