Have you ever wondered how animals
are able to survive in the wild?
Animals have certain
adaptations that help them to
survive.
PLA
© 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.
PLA
© 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!
PLA
© 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.
PLA
© A. Weinberg
We can separate adaptations into two
categories:
Physical
AND
Behavioral

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.

Physical adaptation
Camouflage (use of color in a surrounding)
The chameleon can change its color to match its
surroundings. Can you do that?
PLA
© A. Weinberg
Mimicry
(looking or sounding like another living organism)
The Viceroy butterfly uses mimicry to look like the
Monarch butterfly. Can you tell them apart?
Poisonous
Not poisonous
Physical adaptation
I’m the
Monarch!
I’m the
Viceroy!

Chemical defenses (like venom, ink,
sprays)
Physical adaptation
PLA

Body coverings & parts (claws, beaks, feet,
armor plates, skulls, teeth)
Physical adaptations
The elephant’s trunk is a physical adaptation that
helps it to clean itself, eat, drink, and to pick things
up.
PLA

Now let’s learn about
Behavioral Adaptations…
Behavioral Adaptations allow
animals to respond to life
needs.
PLA
© 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.
PLA
© 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.
PLA
© 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
PLA
© A. Weinberg
Learned
behaviors
Obtained by
interacting with the
environment and
cannot be passed
on to the next
generation except
by teaching.
=
PLA
© A. Weinberg
In this lesson, we have learned about
animal adaptations.
There are 2 ways to describe adaptations:
Physical and Behavioral
PLA
© A. Weinberg
Physical adaptations are body structures.
Some examples of physical adaptations are:
Camouflage
Mimicry
Body coverings & parts
Chemical defenses
PLA
© A. Weinberg
Behavioral Adaptations are animals’ actions.
Behavioral Adaptations can be
Instinctive or Learned.
PLA
© A. Weinberg
The next time
you read about
an animal in the
wild, or when
you see one on
television, think
about its
adaptations….
