A Well-Adapted Animal

In class, you and a partner were assigned an animal and a biome different from the one it lives in (e.g. a butterfly living in a tundra). Your challenge was to think about new adaptations to help the animal survive. Use Explain Everything to create slides that illustrate the animal living in a different biome. Show how the animal will adapt to weather, shelter, food, and protection from predators. Locate images online and use Drawing Pad to make modifications. Below are links to two sample projects:
