2. For a potential learning cycle Explore, students can become acquainted with species adaptations and defense mechanisms by laboratory stations. Each station could explain a different form of an adaptation that an animal or plant has adopted in order to survive. Students will be asked to answer questions at each station and explain their observations.
3. You can use this clip as an assessment to an evolutionary unit and have the students explain how penguins are best suited for its environment and explain how its adaptations have helped its survival. Students can also give an example of another species in a different environment that has developed evolutionary traits in order to survive in its habitat and reproduce.
