Construct models of plants that are adapted to living under specific environmental conditions.
Group Size: Any size Suggested Age: 10 and up Time: 40-45 min. Focus question: Summary:
What kinds of adaptations would a plant need in order to survive in a particular environment? Can you invent a “plant” with those characteristics?
This activity will enable the participants to recognize that plants, as well as animals, are uniquely suited to their habitats. Using imagination and some craft materials, youngsters construct models of plants that are “adapted” to survive under specified environmental conditions. After they finish, other participants make inferences about the habitat and unique features of each plant.
