During this 3 day class, students will use observations to participate in science discussion. Day 1: What is biomimicry? While viewing detailed pictures, students will discuss examples of human inventions that have been inspired by plants and animals. Day 2: How do animals adapt to the weather? We will look at how various plants and animals adapt to different weather conditions. For example- why do cacti have spikes? Day 3: How can we use animal adaptations to help humans? Students...
Students will gain an understanding of animal adaptations and biomimicry.
I have been a public school science teacher for 10 years. I worked at the Nature Museum in Chicago for 2 years with a focus on Midwestern plants and animals.
Students will need paper and pencil. Coloring supplies are also recommended.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
