Students will explore some of Earth’s most curious creatures and discover what features help them live and grow in their unique environment. They will use observations of animals to create a creature that is able to live in a specific and perhaps unusual habitat like a deep ice cave, outer space, or even the classroom!
Make observations of animals by engaging with media and hands-on specimens, including replica skulls and animal coverings. Use those observations to create a creature from various art materials that reflects their organism’s ability to survive in its habitat.
