We have been learning about how animals get their needs met, food chains, and different adaptations that help animals do their job. We made a food chain. When one of the links is cut students learned that the living thing has to make a change or risk not being able to sustain itself.
We also did a little experiment to show how our fingers are adaptations to the body that help us pick up things. Aydin was a great participant. We taped his hands closed and had him try different skills in the classroom. We learned that task can still be accomplished, but it took more work and was not easy to do!
