2nd Quarter Science EQT review

Essential Questions

  • How do parts of animals help them to adapt to their environment?

  • Why do organisms become extinct?

  • What occurs at each stage of development in complete and incomplete metamorphosis?

  • What are the roles of the producers, consumers, and decomposers in a food chain?

  • How does the flow of energy go through a food chain?

  • How will changes in the environment affect a community of organisms?


  • Adaption

  • Habitat, niche

  • Migration

  • Mimicry

  • Hibernation

Animal Adaptations

  • Animals have different body structures that help them survive in different environments. These are called_____________.


  • Some types of body adaptations are_________________.

    Camouflage, thickened fur, large eyes, mimicry, hollow bones, beaks, specialized feet, talons, claws, etc.

  • How does a polar bears fur color help him in an Arctic environment?

    Their white fur helps them camouflage

    themselves in the snow.

    Their thick fur helps keep the warm.

  • What are claws-talons for?

    To hold onto branches or tear apart food.

  • What happens to plants and animals if they cannot adapt to a new or change in the environment?

    They will not survive (die).

  • Some types of behavior adaptations are_________________.

    Migration, mimicry, hibernation, nocturnality

  • Why do ducks migrate?

  • To find food in warmer areas.
