    1. Design a Critter Project Pre-AP Biology Ms. Haut

    2. Objectives • Design a new animal with adaptations best suited to its environment. • Explain how your animal’s adaptations help it survive in its habitat.

    3. Compare Adaptations http://fwp.mt.gov/mtoutdoors/images/Portraits/snowshoehare.jpg http://www.cometowickenburg.com/Jack%20rabbit%202.jpg

    4. Compare Adaptations http://www.wallpaper-network.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/bird_12-931447.jpg http://bcsberlin.k12.nj.us/CPUsite/Lessons/Fish%20Pictures/PufferFish.jpg

    5. Compare Adaptations http://www.michiganfilmoffice.org/cm/images/content/789px-White-tailed_deer.jpg http://dhreno.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/mtnlion.jpg

    6. Project Description • Think of adaptations a particular animal would need to better survive in a particular environment. What functions would they serve?

    7. Project Description • Draw a picture of the animal in its environment. • Any physical adaptations should be depicted in the picture. • Key features of environment must be shown. • Picture must be in color. http://media-2.web.britannica.com/eb-media/28/92728-050-92E757D6.jpg

    8. Project Description • Write an essay describing the following • Description of the environment—climate, temperature, plant life, amount of precipitation, amount of sunlight, terrain etc. • Clear description of your animal’s adaptations, including their function http://community.greencupboards.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/45477_1.jpg

    9. Project Description • Additional items to consider and determine: • What does your critter eat? How does it obtain its food? • What are its natural predators? • How does it live/survive (daily activities)? • How does it protect itself? • Any seasonal behaviors? • Any differences between males and females? • Adaptations must be realistic to suit the environment. • Items not to be considered: • Cannot be a magical creature • Should not be identical to existing animals—you should be creative http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/labs/Owings/images/Fig3SquirrelTailFlagging.jpg

    10. Determining Project Criteria • Roll the die to select the constraints of your project: • Animal type • Whether your animal is a predator or prey species • Habitat Temperature • Amount of precipitation • Habitat type http://www.stanford.edu/~siegelr/tz/tz2006/predatorandprey.jpg
