FPMSA Fifth Grade Scientists Explore Animal Adaptations

Fifth grade students in Mrs. Logue’s science class at FPMSA explored how when the environment changes, differences between individuals allow some plants and animals to survive and reproduce while others die or move to new locations.

Students had 10 seconds to pick up as many beans as possible. They discovered that they picked up more beans of the color that contrasted with the paper they were on. The beans similar in color to the paper represented the animals that have a better chance of survival due to the physical adaptation of camouflage.
