Animal Adaptations

  1. 1. © A. Weinberg SOL 3.4 By Ms. Weinberg toad
  2. 2. © A. Weinberg Have you ever wondered how animals are able to survive in the wild? Animals have certain adaptations that help them to survive.
  3. 3. © A. Weinberg Think about the way you dress in the winter. You don’t wear your shorts and bathing suit when it’s snowing outside! You wear warm clothes, and maybe even a hat and mittens to protect yourself from the weather.
  4. 4. © A. Weinberg And what if you are having a snowball fight? You probably run away from the person throwing at you, and maybe even try to sneak up on that person and throw some snowballs!
  5. 5. © A. Weinberg The way you dress in the winter, as well as the way that you run and hide from someone throwing snow at you are kinds of … Adaptations.
  6. 6. © A. Weinberg We can separate adaptations into two categories: Physical AND Behavioral A D A P T A T I O N S
  7. 7. © A. Weinberg Physical adaptations are body structures that allow an animal to find and consume food, defend itself, and to reproduce its species. Physical adaptations help an animal survive in its environment. Hey! I’m a walking stick. I look just like a stick you’d find on the ground. © A. Weinberg
  8. 8. © A. Weinberg Physical adaptation Camouflage (use of color in a surrounding) Thechameleoncanchangeitscolortomatchitssurroundings. Cany ou dothat?

  12. 12. © A. Weinberg Now let’s learn about Behavioral Adaptations… Behavioral Adaptations allow animals to respond to life needs.
  13. 13. © A. Weinberg Each organism has unique methods of adapting to its environment by means of different actions. Behavioral Adaptations are animals’ actions. Remember that Physical Adaptations are body structures.
  14. 14. © A. Weinberg We can divide Behavioral Adaptations into two groups: Instinctive Learned These behaviors happen naturally & don’t have to be learned. These behaviors must be taught.
  15. 15. © A. Weinberg Instinctive behaviors happen naturally & don’t need to be learned = Finding shelter Methods of gathering & storing food Defending oneself Raising young Hibernating Migrating
  16. 16. © A. Weinberg Learned behaviors Obtained by interacting with the environment and cannot be passed on to the next generation except by teaching. =
  17. 17. © A. Weinberg In this lesson, we have learned about animal adaptations. There are 2 ways to describe adaptations: Physical and Behavioral
  18. 18. © A. Weinberg Physical adaptations are body structures. Some examples of physical adaptations are: Camouflage Mimicry Body coverings & parts Chemical defenses
  19. 19. © A. Weinberg Behavioral Adaptations are animals’ actions. Behavioral Adaptations can be Instinctive or Learned.
