The student is expected to compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive such as hooves on prairie animals or webbed feet in aquatic animals.
Plants and animals have specific structures and functions that enable them to be successful in their environments.
Examples of structures that enable animals to survive in their environments are the hooves of bison, the webbed feet of ducks, and the claws of squirrels.
The thumb is an important structure that enables human beings to survive.
What are adaptations? How do they help organisms survive?
What are some examples of plant and animal adaptations?
