  • Adaptations Project Grade 5

    1. 1. Design an Animal– Use what you know about habitat adaptations to design an animal for your chosen planet– You will use PowerPoint’s shape and / or drawing tools to create your animal– When you are all done, give your animal a name and move him into his habitat
    2. 2. Designing an Animal• When you are designing your animal consider the following: – Size – What does it eat? – How will it catch/get food and water? – How will it keep warm/cool – Where will it shelter? – How will it protect/defend itself from attackers?
    3. 3. Tools You WillUse for Drawing
    4. 4. Tools You Will Use for Labeling

    7. 7. This planet is dark and cold most of the time. It is very mountainous. It rains almost all day.Because of the wet, dark conditions, the only plants that grow well are small mosses andfunguses. Animals on this planet include a type of mouse, a nocturnal hunting largecat, fish, and a variety of insects.
    8. 8. This planet is dry and hot. Most of the planet is flat. Water is found in underground streamsbut there is little water on the surface of the planet. Most of the planet’s surface is covered insand, although there are patches of dry grass. When plants can get their roots down into thewater table, they grow into tall trees with leaves at the top but not along the trunk. Plantswhich are not connected to the water table are small and dry, but they are edible. Animals onthis planet include insects, a species of birds which roost in the high trees, a sand-coloredlizard and a type of rat.

    10. 10. This planet is tropical: wet and hot. Most of the planet is covered by rainforest. The planet isvery flat. Water collects in large pools and lakes which have water in them all year ’round. Aspecies of poisonous plant grows thickly on the ground. The spines of this plant are poisonous,and any animal which steps on one is sure to die. The vegetation is plentiful, and includesleaves, fruits and nuts. Animals include carnivorous snakes, varieties of insects, monkeys, fishand birds.

    12. 12. This planet has a moderate climate. It never gets very hot or very cold, but stays mild allyear ’round. It rains for part of the year and the water forms pools and lakes which dry uptowards the end of the year and then the planet is very dry. The planet is partlymountainous and partly flat. Vegetation includes tall trees with high leaves and fruit, anda smaller plant which bears nuts. However, these nuts are inside hard shells which need tobe removed before the nut can be eaten. Animals include rats and mice which liveunderground, insects, birds that nest in the tall trees, slow moving mammals which alsolive in the trees and a species of carnivorous nocturnal wolf.
    13. 13. This planet has a moderate climate. It never gets very hot or very cold, but stays mild all year’round. It rains for part of the year and the water forms pools and lakes which dry up towardsthe end of the year and then the planet is very dry. The planet is partly mountainous and partlyflat. Vegetation includes tall trees with high leaves and fruit, and a smaller plant which bearsnuts. However, these nuts are inside hard shells which need to be removed before the nut canbe eaten. Animals include rats and mice which live underground, insects, birds that nest in thetall trees, slow moving mammals which also live in the trees and a species of carnivorousnocturnal wolf.
