Investigate: Plant & Animal Adaptations (September 2018) During the Investigate program, students will take the role of Museum curators and use close observation and critical thinking to discover the origin, meaning, and importance of real objects from the Museum’s Collection.
Learners will be able to analyze primary sources (specimen) and make inferences about them based on detailed observations.
Learners will be able to describe what an adaptation is and be able to provide examples of adaptations specific animals and plants use to survive in their habitats.
