Bird Beaks

Draw an Adaptation

Animal Sort


Amazing Octopus

What’s the Adaptation?


Objectives and Indicators

  • Students will understand traits that may help or hinder survival in a given environment.
  • ILOs
  • Observe simple objects, patterns, and events and report their observations.
  • Use data to construct a reasonable conclusion.
  • Read Informational science texts


ENGAGE/EXPLORE: Students participate in bird beak simulation and do a bird matching/sort activity.

EXPLAIN: Reading of adaptation text, class discussion and view octopus adaptation video clips

ELABORATE:Draw an animal activity-using clue cards, create the animal described.

EVALUATE: Identifying adaptations and what would happen if the habitat changed-writing activity in notebook.

At each table (or create stations)

  • Students predict which model beak will work best for picking up: marshmallow, beans, water.
  • Students have 20 seconds to pick up “food” and record in data chart in notebook.
  • Repeat for each type of “food.”
  • Conclusion: Which type of beak is best? It depends on what kind of food a bird eats.
