    • 1. The affects on Plants, Animals, and Their Surroundings
      By: Melissa Southern
      Weather and Seasonal Changes
      Science 2.7: The student will investigate and understand that weather and seasonal changes affect plants, animals, and their surroundings. Key concepts include
      a.) effects on growth and behavior of living things (migration, hibernation, camouflage, adaptation, dormancy)
    • 2. The weather and seasonal patterns affect plants and animals and their surroundings because:
      As seasons change, plants and animals react to changes in:
      • Temperature
      • 3. The amount of light
      • 4. Type of precipitation
      These changes made in response to the environment are called adaptations.
    • 5. What is Adaptation?
      A change an animal goes through to fit into its environment
      Examples of Adaptations
      Whiskers
      Sharp teeth
      Webbed feet
      Sharp claws
      Hooves
      Large beaks
      Wings
    • 6. Whiskers
      Sharp Teeth
      Examples of Adaptations
      Helps an animal feel around
      Helps an animal eat meat
    • 7. Webbed Feet
      Hooves
      Sharp Claws
    • 8. Large Beaks
      Wings
      • Primary function in most winged animals is flight, which is used to hunt prey
      • 9. Some winged animals use wings to swim, not fly
      • 10. Primary function is to help the animal eat
      • 11. Large Beaks can be found on Carnivores and Herbivores
    • Migration
      Hibernation
      Dormancy
      Camouflage
      Behavioral Responses to Environmental Changes
    • 12. Migration
      when animals move from one place to another as a result of temperature changes
      Animals migrate for different reasons:
      to find a better climate
      to find better food
      to find a safe place to live
      to find a safe place to raise their young
      Examples of animals who migrate
      Salmon
      Humpback whales
      Canadian geese
      Monarch butterflies
    • 13. Hibernation
      Examples of animals who hibernate
      bats
      groundhogs
      box turtles
      squirrels
      Bears
      ------------------------------------------
      Examples of things that can be dormant
      Bears
      Hummingbirds
      Trees
      Flowers
      Plants
      The inactive periods of animals in the cold temperatures of winter 
      A period of inactivity 
      Dormancy
    • 14. Camouflage
      when something changes its color or pattern to help it blend in with the environment
      Camouflage is an outward coloration that allows animals to appear similar to the plants and places in which they live
      Examples of animals that are or can camouflage:
      Arctic Fox
      Polar Bear
      Frogs
