1 Do-Now Animal Adaptation Miss Scillieri Take out Science Fair Checkpoint 1: Entry Form and Partner Contract.Answer the following question as I call you up.Using page 19 as a source explain one predator adaptation and one prey adaptation. If possible site from documentary.If you do not have it tomorrow, you will stay in for lunch and will call your parents explaining why it dropped 20 points no exceptionsFebruary 18, Daily AgendaCheck Science Fair CheckpointDiscuss Do-NowFinish DocumentaryDiscuss Documentary and power point.
2 Do-Now Take out Science Fair As I check science fair answer the following questionHumans interact with their environment on a daily basis. They can have positive and negative effects. Using four vocabulary words from the chapter write a paragraph describe how human interaction affects the environment.* Underline vocabulary words
3 ResponseHumans destroy habitats in a number of different ways. One way is clearing land to build. Pollution may leak into the ecosystem. Oil and gasoline are abiotic factors that can damage the biotic environment like plants and animals. Organisms may have to emigrate to new habitats to survive. One such destroyer was the BP gasoline oil spill where hundreds of marine animals lost more than their homes.
4 Do-Now Directions: Assignment Take out Science Fair As I check science fair take out notebook paper and pen. Everything else off desk. Read over the writing prompt and outline your ideas.Writing prompt: Today you will practice for the NJ ASKThis will count as a lab grade. I am looking for effort not excellence.You have an half an hour to write a 2-3 paragraph essay answering the followingThe Venus flytrap is a booby trap. If the fly touches the two triggers the trap closes and captures the fly. Think of ways you can create a booby trap to capture food. Write and essay explaining your booby traps works, giving instructions, and why you need it.What your essay needs-Intro ParagraphBody explaining how your booby traps work and why it is importantClosing relating it to your life or something else you have learned
5 Do-NowLab Set UpWhat to do once set upSet up for lab1’s get 4 lab reports on chair2’s get 4 pieces of string and two pairs of scissors on radiator3’s Get 2 stopwatches and 2 pieces of paper- on table 7. Cut the paper in half4’s fill in as sub and manage table make sure everyone has a pen, report, group has all supplies, all other materials on floor and that everyone is behaving.As I am checking science fair read over lab directions! Discuss with group. Answer the question and write your hypothesis
6 Once you finish lab… After lab answer the following question Answer on back pageHumans interact with their environment on a daily basis. They can have positive and negative effects. Using four vocabulary words from the chapter write a paragraph describe how human interaction affects the environment.
7 ResponseNatural selection is the process of positive adaptations being passed down from generation to generation. For example giraffes with long necks. We see this a lot in the animal kingdom, for example a mouse has brown fur as camouflage. Its predator an eagle has talons to grab the unsuspecting critter. As you can see adaptations are in full affect.
8 Academic Vocabulary Camouflage CamouflageAn adaptation in which an animal protects itself against predators by blending in with the environment.Protective ColorationA type of camouflage in which the color of an animal blends in with its background, protecting the animal against predators.Protective ResemblanceA type of camouflage which the color and shape of an animal blends in with its background, protecting it against predators..

10 February 10th, 2015 Learning Target: To discuss adaptations Come in quietlySit in assigned seatTake out vocabulary HW to be checkedWrite tonight's HW into agendaComplete Do-NowDo-Now: Complete the T-Chart listing at least 3 adaptations a predator uses to survive and 3 adaptions prey use to survive. Use your schema and vocabulary to guide youPredators Prey
11 What is an adaptation?Adaptation A characteristic that helps an organism to survive in its environment.Survival in any ecosystem is a constant struggle. Organisms with successful adaptations survive more frequently that other organisms. The individuals that survive pass on their characteristics to their young.
12 Physical Adaptations Physical feature that helps and organism survive Body part that gives an advantage
13 Physical AdaptationsWhale and dolphins can hold their breath for long periods of time. Other aquatic animals breathe using gills.
14 Physical AdaptationsReptiles have dry, scaly, waterproof skin. This helps them survive on land and in dry environments.
15 Physical Adaptations THINK OF OTHER BIRDS WHAT ADAPATIONS DO THEY HAVE Ostriches can run very fast.Birds have hollow, light weight bones to help them fly. Birds that do not fly have other traits to help them adapt.
16 Some mammals have thick hair to keep them warm. Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.Some mammals have thick hair to keep them warm.
17 Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.Kangaroos have pouches to carry their young in. When marsupials have babies the offspring is not fully developed and they carry the baby in the pouch until it fully develops.
18 Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.The duck billed platypus and the spiny anteater produce milk to feed their young.
19 Behavioral Adaptations Things that organisms DO (voluntary)A Way an Organism purposely acts to survive
20 Behavioral Adaptations Ostriches can run very fast.Wolves travel in packs to allow them to hunt large prey they may not be able to kill along.
21 Behavioral Adaptations Ostriches can run very fast.Fish swim in school to protect them from predators.
22 Behavioral Adaptations Ostriches can run very fast.Aardvarks stay in burrows during the day and only come out at night to hunt for food to avoid the heat.(nocturnal)
23 Behavioral Adaptations Ostriches can run very fast.Reptiles must “sun” to maintain their body temperature since they are cold blooded.
24 Male peacocks have tall feathers to display to attract a mate. Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.Male peacocks have tall feathers to display to attract a mate.
25 Crickets chip by rubbing their wings together to attract mates. Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.Crickets chip by rubbing their wings together to attract mates.
26 Physical AdaptationsOstriches can run very fast.Female alligators carry their young to the water to care for them for several weeks.
27 InstinctsAn instinct is an inherited behavior that is not learned but done automatically.Ostriches can run very fast.A newborn puppy can find its way to their mother. They are not taught to do this; it is instinct for them (automatic).
28 What are adaptations to climate? Adaptations differ depending on the environment. Animals that live in frozen areas near the earth’s poles do not have the same adaptations of animals who live in deserts.Animals in colder climates must be able to reduce heat loss.Animals in deserts and hot climates must be able to get rid of excess heat.Camels have humps made of fat to store food and water when they are scarce.Fennec’s, a kind of fox, have big ears to allow the heat to escape. Animals that live in cold have insulation that traps heat like blubber for whales and fur in feathers for birds
29 What are adaptations to climate? Behavioral adaptations also help some animals survive extreme weather.Ostriches can run very fast.Penguins huddle together for protection for the extreme cold.
30 What are adaptations to climate? Behavioral adaptations also help some animals survive season changes.Some animals such as bats, snakes, turtles, and frogs hibernate in periods of inactivity during the cold. During hibernation, animals live on previously stored energy.Ostriches can run very fast.Many animals such as birds, butterflies, and fish migrate. Organisms migrate for season change, food availability, and loss of habitat.
31 What adaptations do predators and prey have? Predators Some snakes and lizard have poisons in their jaws The hognose snake will play dead to attackPREYSome animals use chemicals when threatened like a skunk.Gazelles run fast away from predatorsBugs right into a tight ball to avoid prey.Ostriches can run very fast.
32 What adaptations do predators and prey have? How Predators Catch Prey?Some adaptations help predators catch more prey.Ostriches can run very fast.Anteaters have long tongues that are covered with tiny spikes and sticky saliva to pick up ants.Woodpecker finches use a twig or cactus spine to remove insects from deep within trees.
33 Some animals survive by blending in. CamouflageSome animals survive by blending in.CamouflageAn adaptation in which an animal protects itself against predators by blending in with the environment.Camouflage predators can sneak up on prey and prey with camouflage can hide from predators.Ostriches can run very fast.
34 Protective Coloration A type of camouflage in which the color of an animal blends in with its background, protecting the animal against predators.Ostriches can run very fast.In the winter, the arctic fox has a white coat to blend in with the snow. In the spring time, they fox’s coat changes colors to blend in with the plants that grow in warm weather.
35 Protective Resemblance A type of camouflage which the color AND shape of an animal blends in with its background, protecting it against predators.Ostriches can run very fast.The walking stick insect resembles a stick or small branch.
36 Coral Snake and King Snake Robber Fly and Bumblebee MimicryAn adaptation in which an animal is protected against predators by its resemblance to another, unpleasant animal.Coral Snake and King SnakeOstriches can run very fast.Robber Fly and BumblebeeThe viceroy butterfly is protected from predators because it looks like the bad-tasting, poisonous monarch butterfly.
37 Adaptations to climate can help animals survive extreme temperatures. ReviewPhysical and behavioral adaptations help animals survive in environments.Adaptations to climate can help animals survive extreme temperatures.Ostriches can run very fast.Adaptations that allow organisms to avoid predation include camouflage and mimicry.
