Adaptation & Evolution


In science this week, Year 6 will be looking at how different animals have adapted to live comfortably and successfully in their environment or habitat. More specifically, we have decided to look at the Polar Bear and the Giraffe- these two animals are from two completely different biomes (Tundra and Grassland), and so will lead to some good comparisons and differences.


Look at the two pictures below: 




How have these two animals adapted to survive in their habitat? 


Points to think about: 

Giraffe (head & neck)

Polar Bear (Fur, feet & skin) 


Use the internet to research or use the texts below to identify how these animals have adapted.
