Adapting creatures

An imaginative resource that helps introduce students to the reasons why species may adapt and evolve to changes in their habitats over time. It is underpinned with real examples of species in the natural world that have unusual adaptations. 

Students begin by imagining the adaptations that a certain species may have to make them successful e.g a flightless, tree climbing, fruit-eating bird. They then consider adaptations that the species might evolve as their habitat changes.

It is a starting point to then move on to discuss how new species evolve over time.
