This lesson package on Physical & Behavioral Adaptations is aimed towards middle school students. It begins with an introduction on Adaptations. The lesson then moves onto Behavioral and Physical Adaptations with multiple inquiry activities built into the PowerPoint. Your kids will be encouraged to collaborate and perform a little research. This is a great time for them to take out their own devices or use classroom computers. If these aren’t available, this section can be discussed as a class instead.
The package contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), 2 embedded videos and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.
Included in the package:
– The teacher version of the PowerPoint
– The student version of the PowerPoint
– Multiple Inquiry Activities
– 2 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– Physical Adaptations
– Behavioral Adaptations
– Adaption Inquiry
The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
