Animal Adaptations display

As part of our science unit on Animal Adaptations the children made paper mache animals and researched to find out how they are adapted to their environment. The practical aspect brought this unit alive and the research they completed was excellent as a result.
Over the next year I will be buying lots of stuffed animals to avoid the long process of making them. The display will be just as effective!

Your kids will miss out on a great learning opportunity if you just buy the animals. The time spent making them can be filled with lots of speaking, listening and research about the topic. It doesn't have to be just their hands that are kept busy!
