ADAPTATION - Lesson 2 Week 3

Well done to those who submitted their fossil research, isn't it amazing that they can tell us about life from millions of years ago?  If you haven't submitted yours yet, you can add your pictures anytime to your blogs to gain your team a point.

 

For this week's learning - you need to understand the term 'adaptation'.  You need to watch the following videos and make notes on a spare piece of paper.  Your task, which needs handing in via Purple Mash, will be explained further down the page.

Your task is to research 1 of the following living things (in the pictures below) in detail and to write a paragraph explaining how it is adapted to survive. Please submit via Purple Mash.
