Staying alive exploring animal adaptations
Staying Alive: Australian Animal Adaptations
In this activity, students investigate how adaptations support survival in specific habitats. They consider the living and non-living (biotic and abiotic) conditions of five Queensland habitats and suggest general adaptations that would assist survival in these locations. Students then work in small groups to explore two animals from one habitat. They identify, analyse and compare the adaptations that help these animals survive in the habitat, linking form and function, before sharing their learnings with the class group.
