Cool Organisms Project
Some organisms are SO COOL and have traits that help them survive. You are going to be choosing an organism to research and create 1 slide slideshow to display their coolness.
Animals that can camouflage can help them hide from predators or sneak up on prey. Some animals that can do this are: Long-eared Owl, Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare. Leopard, Giraffe, Crab Spider, octopus, squid and SO MANY MORE!
The fastest animals: The Pronghorn Antelope can travel at 60 mph - a track star! unlike the Cheetah at 70 mph. The Brown Hare can travel 48 mph but so can their predator the red fox. The Wildebeest and the lion are at 50 mph. In the ocean we have super fast Marlin and Sailfish. The Spur winged goose can fly 88 mph. Or the Frigate bird that can stay in the air for a week at a time. Maybe you have a different fastest animal. How does their speed help them with natural selection?
Poisonous: The Asian Tiger Snake is both venomous and poisonous. Not good for the prey or the predator! Hawksbill Sea Turtle, Cane Toad, Dart Frog, and a Spanish Fly are also known to be poisonous. But there are so many more!
Smartest: Who comes in with the smarts? Crows, pigs, octopus, Parrots, elephants, chimpanzees, dolphins and Orangutans. How do they use their intelligence to help them outsmart predators or catch prey?
Animals that are still alive today have some traits that help them adapt, change and survive in their environment. Find an animal that has a cool or unique trait that helps them. You can find adaptations in ants, fungus, glow in the dark bacteria, praying mantids and sloths (although not for their speed). Find an animal that interests you and focus on their traits that help them survive. Don't talk about how slow they are unless it in some way helps them.
CONTENT Expectations: You get one slide…
