Animal Adaptations - Virtual

Animal Adaptations - Virtual

Virtual Experience Streamed Live from the Science Museum

Beavers, bears, and birds, oh my! Structure follows function as students explore the adaptations that abound in the animal kingdom! Learn what adaptations are, the difference between physical and behavioral adaptations and how they help all kinds of animals survive, and thrive, in the ecosystems they call home. Using the 4 basic resources as a lens, students will learn that through changes over long periods of time, animals have adapted to meet their needs.

Format:
RMSC sends Zoom link to the teacher. The teacher co-hosts Zoom and manages the participants.

Requirements:
Computer or Smart Device to connect to internet, Zoom, webcam & microphone; Projector and external speakers needed in the classroom.
