What is camouflage? It’s the way animals use their patterns, colors, disguises/costumes, and mimicry to blend in with their surroundings. Have you ever wondered where these animals are hiding? How they survive? How they sneak up on their enemies? We will be studying types of animals that use camouflage. You will learn the answers to these questions and much more! Your mission is to find out which animals use each of the 4 types of camouflage!
As our class studies 4 different types of camouflage, you will visit websites with your group to help us figure out which type of animals use each of the 4 types of camouflage. As you explore each type, you will collect interesting facts about each animal. At the end of our study, your group will design a poster to display the facts you've learned about the different types of camouflage and the animals that are in each category. Your group will present your poster to our class.
To accomplish this task you will follow the steps below: 1. First you will be assigned your group. 2. Each group will be given a fact sheet to record your findings about each category of camouflage. 3. Then you will click on the links that have each type of camouflage. 4. Enjoy your field trip, but don't forget to fill out your fact sheet about each category. 5. After your group has gathered your information, your group will work together to design a poster to display and share all that you have learned. 6. When you have finished your poster, your group will present it to our class.
