(5.10A) Adaptations in Plants and Animals
The student is expected to compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive such as hooves on prairie animals or webbed feet in aquatic animals.
Just like animals, different plant species have characteristics that help them survive in distinct environments. Plant adaptations, such as colorful flowers or fleshy stems, are explored in this section.
Animals possess specific adaptations to help them live and survive within their environments. Students model different adaptations and match them with the organism and the environment to which they belong.
