Y6 Adaptations and Habitats

Pupils research a number of different animals that live in a range of habitats and try to identify the adaptations that have made it possible for them to survive and thrive there.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution
  • NaG - pupils should also appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments
  • WS - pupils might analyse the advantages and disadvantages of specific adaptations, such as being on two feet rather than four, having a long or a short beak, having gills or lungs, tendrils on climbing plants
