3rd grade learned about animals and the differences between physical and behavioral adaptations. Students chose an animal to research and learn about. They learned about the animal’s habitat and other facts relating to what the animal eats, how it defends itself, and how it raises its young. 3rd graders then made dioramas including all of this information and presented it to Kindergarten and their classmates. The creatively used all types of materials including cotton balls, paper, candy, yarn, slime, and coffee grounds to name a few.
