Reflection: Problem-based Approaches Adapting and Camouflage - Section 1: How Do Animals Survive?


At the very start of the lesson, we needed to check on our seed experiment. Sometimes experiments take time to develop and observe. In order to continue with our observations of the seeds we need to have to time to check and make notes. With the transition already taking place to get ready for the lesson, it is a great time to check on our seeds. We have to get our journals out and so a quick observation is perfect. I also use the groupings that were in place for our seed experiment for todays lesson. Saves time, and when you already have successful groups it makes the process that much quicker.

Objective: SWBAT determine how animals use camouflage to survive in various environments and why animals look the way they do in their environments.

Big Idea: Camouflage and adaptability are structures that animals and plants have that aide in their survival. This lesson helps students connect to how camouflage and other structures make it possible for animals and plants to survive.
