Mrs. Bisson's fourth grade students have been learning about the special adaptations that animals have that help them to survive. These adaptations can be structural, (the way an animal looks) or behavioral, (the way an animal acts).
Each student created a new animal and applied the information that was learned in this science unit. Each student created an animal with a different head, different legs, and a different tail. As part of the assignment students had to explain how the structural adaptations of their animal enabled the animal to survive. They also had to determine the correct habitat for the new animal.
This project was an excellent and fun opportunity to demonstrate what the students had learned. I don't think anyone would want to run into any of these animals on a dark night.
