Y6 Animal Adaptations

Pupils identify the range of adaptations a number of animals have developed to help them survive and flourish in a range of different environments (a cut and paste activity).

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 appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments, for example by exploring how giraffes’ necks got longer, or the development of insulating fur on the arctic fox
  • WS - pupils might work scientifically by: observing and raising questions about local animals and how they are adapted to their environment
