Every animal and plant you have ever seen looks the way they do because of adaptations. This introductory course will discuss the Biology of animals in relation to the structural and behavioral adaptations that help these animals survive. Students will engage in conversation about animals they have seen and have been curious about. They will see examples of unique adaptations and use their critical thinking to understand why animals may have certain features or behave in a particular way....
This lesson will be useful for middle school and high school students who have an interest in Biology and Zoology, as well as for students who may need some support with these topics. There will be no homework or assessment, though students will be encouraged to observe the world around them and become active scientists.
I have been an evolutionary scientist for over a decade. Much of my research has been focused on the structural and behavioral adaptations of animals.
All class material will be provided by the teacher. Students may want to bring their own pen and paper for note-taking.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This lesson may have some scientific imagery that could be considered "gross."
