Animal Science II

Adaptations, Camouflage, Migrations, Hibernations and more!

Ages 9-11

Prerequisites:  Reading at a 5th grade level.

In this fun project based class, we will learn all about the animals of world!   Who migrates and who hibernates?  Why do they have different adaptations to the environment?  Why can some animals change their appearance, and how do they do that?!  How do animals adapt, and how quickly can animals adapt? 

In our Case Study, we will learn about Koko, the gorilla that uses Sign Language!  Obviously, this is a learned skill!  We'll be learning which skills are learned from the pack and which are part of the genetic code.

In Animal Science, we will be watching videos, reading passages, creating art projects, learning about famous animal scientists and so much more! 

Our work will include creating Venn Diagrams, reading differentiated passages about the animals that we are studying, writing short paragraphs, comparing and contrasting animals, completing art projects, map & biome projects and more!
