Can you find me???
PREDATOR PREY CARNIVORE HERBIVORE OMNIVORE CONSUMER PRODUCER What do these words mean?
Who is predator and who is prey?
ADAPTATIONS Learning Objectives: Describe the adaptations of certain animals Describe how some animals are adapted to live in harsh environments
Predators and Prey sheet
Why is ear size important? How is a chameleon? How is a lion adapted? How is a deer adapted? How is a camel adapted? How is a snail adapted? How does hibernating help? What adaptations do penguins have? Where do you find eyes on prey? What is a predator? How is a polar bear adapted? What features do predators have?
Which Adaptation? Has teeth adapted to tearing flesh. Uses it tail for a courtship display. Has spines to protect itself from predators. Live in a social group.
Lesson Objectives: To state what things an animal competes for in its environment. To describe how particular adaptations in animals make it a successful competitor ~ explain why Competition In Animals
What Do Animals Compete For? Food Fussy Eaters Same prey Protection
What Do Animals Compete For? Mate Courtship Displays Fight
What Do Animals Compete For? Territory Building a nest Marking their territory
Competition In Action Watch the following three video clips and fill in your work sheet, stating: ~ what the animal is competing for ~ the adaptations that make the animal successful mpetition-amongst-male-antelopes-during- the-mating-season/7128.html aviour-of-poison-arrow-frogs/7116.html q1k8
Successful Competitors From the animal you designed last week, select three of its labelled adaptations and explain how that makes your animal a successful competitor. Think about: how it gets its food? how to attract a mate? its territory
Spot the Competitor! In the blue corner....we have the African Elephant In the red corner....we have the Hyena For each example, list as many adaptations as you can and explain why that makes it a good competitor!
Competition In Animals What do animals compete for? Video Clip Animal Example What is it competing for? Adaptations that make it a successful competitor Animals that are well adapted are most likely to win the competition for these resources so they are then more likely to survive and reproduce. Give an example of interspecific competition. Give an example of intraspecific competition.
PREDATOR OR PREY? Or BOTH?
Predators and prey Write down what you think makes these animals good predators? What features do the prey have that enable them to avoid being eaten?
Design your own Choose either a predator or prey. You must draw and label your animal. Diagram with features (L4) Details of how the features work (L5) Explain how the features help the animal to survive (L6) Extension: 1) Draw a possible pyramid of number for your animal and others around it. 2) Draw a predator prey relationship graph for your animal. 3) complete the questions in the book add them to your work
