  • Melissa southern weather and seasonal changes

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