L.I. To understand how animals adapt to their habitat - Mountains 

 

Look at images of animal species that have adapted to live at high altitude. Explore their characteristics and features and summarise how they have adapted to suit a hostile environment.

 

Below are some video clips and information cards to help you.

Create a fact file poster about your chosen animal and present your work to a family member, either at home or through a video chat.

 

Ext. Using what you have learned about animal adaptations, invent your own mountain animal and explain how it would adapt to a mountainous environment. 

 

Remember to upload your work to Class Dojo for your teachers and maybe even the rest of your class to see and enjoy.
