Year 4 Science – W/B 15th June 2020

Lesson 2

This week we will be exploring the term ‘adaptation’ – Do you know what that means? Think about a cold winters day, what do you to keep you warm? Wear gloves? Wear a hat? Put a coat on? That’s you adapting to your surroundings. Well animals do this too, not by wearing hats and gloves, but through lots of other clever changes over hundreds of years. Look at pictures on the sheet provided, how do you think these animals have adapted and why? Using the internet and any books you may have, try and describe the reasons and changes for each of the adaptations that have occurred.
