Clever creatures

Animals have a range of external features that help them survive and thrive in a range of habitats.

The focus of this lesson is to draw together the learnings from previous lessons and allow students to demonstrate their understanding through problem solving and visual representation.

During the lesson students will have the opportunity to:

  • Describe the use of animal body parts for particular purposes such as moving and feeding
  • Represent what was discovered during the unit in an investigation
  • Engage in whole class discussion to share observations and ideas.
