This is a super short post because it's late and my bed is calling :)

We discussed animal adaptations as part of our Rainforest unit this week - how animals adapt to different climates, what specific adaptations some rainforest animals have etc. - and then the kids created their own animals with adaptations that would help them to survive in 4 teacher-invented environments. (I had a lot of fun inventing the habitats - and making my own Wonderfully Weird Whangdoodle as a model) I used this mini project as a formative assessment to see how much the kids had understood of the film and discussion and I think they did a great job! :)

What do you think of these new species? :)

I LOVE the magnification boxes on this one!!
(also the fact that it lives in a "dessert" instead of a "desert" :)

Edit Note: I put this together into a freebie package which you can find here if you think you'd like to try this fun project. Here's what it looks like :)


  1. I love this idea! Thank you for sharing! I'll have to remember it for when we get to adaptations!!

    1. If you want all our charts and information just let me know :) Maybe I should put them together a bit more neatly and make it a freebie - think I'll do that :)
