Every animal has its own environment where
it lives in.
Polar bears live in the Arctic.
Snakes live in the desert.
In order to survive in their environment, they have to
behave in a special way.
It‟s the behavior that
helps a living thing
“animal” to survive in
“Animals hide by blending in their environment”
-Many animals adapt to live in their environment by
-They hide & protect themselves from being eaten
by other animals by blending in their environment .
-Other animals use camouflage to help them not to
be noticed so that they can hunt their preys easily.
- They blend in their
Camouflage to hide
from their predators.
(They color themselves
with the same color of
Polar bear‟s white fur
helps it to blend with
the ice & snow to make
it easy for them to hunt
the seal without being
- Snakes also adapt in
their environment by
camouflage, they hide
from eagles by blending
in the rocks & sand, and
also to make easier for
them to hunt their preys.
-Owls also can adapt by
camouflage inside the
-It make it easier for
them to hunt their preys
without being seen.
- Lions also blend in
using camouflage to
hunt their preys without
Adaptation in the desert
Desert is a very tough environment to live in.
So plants & animals living in the desert
should adapt to survive in it.
Adaptation of plants
- Cactus & Mesquite trees are desert plants.
Have roots that spread far to absorb rainwater.
Have stems that store water.
Have spines to protect plants from being eaten
Adaptation of animals
Some animals are nocturnal
active only at night “they sleep during the day”
Bats & Snakes
- Other desert animals adapt to the desert by
having long ears to cool themselves in the
Adaptation in the Forest
Adaptation in the tropical rainforest
Tropical rainforests get much rain all
the year, this too much rain can damage
the leaves, so there is a drip tip at the
end of each leaf to help rain water to fall
Also in the tropical rainforest, there are many
trees & leaves growing next to each others,
so they can block „prevent” the sun light from
reaching to the plants at the bottom.
- So plants at the bottom adapt by having large
leaves to catch the sun light.
Adaptation in the temperate forest
- Temperate forests don‟t have much rain as
the tropical rainforest, so trees in the
temperate forest adapt by losing their leaves
in the fall to save water.
Adaptation Of animals in the forests
-Some animals imitate another in color or
shape, like : stone fish.
“It looks exactly like the stones of the Ocean, so it‟s
very hard to notice it & that helps it to survive
in its ecosystem”
This is called: Mimicry
Other animals go to a very deep sleep during
the winter, when they couldn‟t find their food,
Like: Dormouse & Bears.
This is called: Hibernation
- Other animals like: Skunks spray a stinky
smell when a predator comes close to them.
Adaptation in the Ocean
Adaptation Of Plants in the Ocean
Algae” Water plants”
-Have leaf like structures to get
sunlight to make food.
- Have root like structure to
attach itself to the ocean floor.
-Balloon like structures called
„air bladder‟ helps
some algae float.
Adaptation Of animals in the Ocean
Some animals move from their ecosystem to
another ecosystem in the winter “ When the
weather gets very cold”
This is called: Migration
Other Ocean animals have different ways of
adaptation like: Angler fish
“Has a growth above its head that lights up”
Adaptation in Wetlands
Adaptation Of Plants in the wetland
have roots that
spread out to
attach well in
the muddy soil.
Adaptation Of animals in the Wetland
can use its fins to
move from a dry
land to a body of
