  1. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    I have learnt the two types of adaptations they are
    1. Physical – what they have on them.
    2. ßehaviour – what they react to eg, you react to a threat.
    For Example a camel has thick eye lashes for being able to walk in the dessert without getting sand all in its eyes and they have big hooves so that if they walk in quick sand they won’t fall in and so that their feet don’t burn. If a camel gets scared it would sit down on the ground.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need adaptions so they can survive in their habit without being seen by their predators or their prey seeing them, and so if they get angry a monkey would jump up and down in a tree bite or scratch.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video
    1. ßirds
    Birds have hallow bones that help them fly.
    2. Camel
    Camels have strong hooves that make sure their feet don’t burn and they don’t drown in quick sand, they have thick eye lashes.
    3. Penguin
    Penguins have black skin which observes heat from the sun so they don’t get cold in their habit and they have webbed feet and wings (they can’t fly) to help them swim.
    4. Monkey
    Monkeys have long arms and legs that help them swing from a tree and they are hard so they don’t get a splinter in their leg.
    5. Fish
    A Fish swallows water that goes out of their gills and makes oxygen but they can’t breathe out of water.
    6. chameleon
    chameleons are a type of lizard but their different to normal lizards they can camouflage when their predator gets close to them and they can blend straight into a eg. tree.

  2. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations. I have learnt that a pang win has lots of flubber in there skin to keep them warm and there feathers make them warm because it gets sun of the sun. A monkey is a tree animal which means they mostly stay in trees and they have different kinds of calls like there is a call to stay away or hi there are heaps.

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations. The first adaptation is its behaviour like a bird if it gets to hot the birds will fly to a cooler place because of where they are that is behaviour and the seconded one is physical which is what it does to survive in the wild on its own like a lion it protects it self by trying to look strong and then others will be scared.

    Explain why animals need adaptations. If a animal didn’t have a adaptation they would die because like a fish if it didn’t have gills it would die of suffocation in the water and a giraffe it would die if it was to slow in the wild because of the tigers might get the giraffe.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video. I have learnt that camels have a hump that stores fat for energy if they can not find food or water for a few days. Pang-wins.

  3. Animal adaptations help animals to survive. Without them animals could die and become extinct.The 2 types of animal adaptations are 1:Behaviour, which includes how the animal acts and protects itself(or how it hunts) to keep itself alive and 2:Physical, which is how the living things body is shaped and what features they have to survive.

    Animals need adaptations because if they didn’t have adaptations, they would easily die! And also, a camel wouldn’t look like a camel, a penguin wouldn’t look like a penguin, a fish wouldn’t look like a fish, etc.

    In the Video, the penguins adaptations were: 1: flubber, 2: webbed feet, 3:black, heat seeking fur and 4: flipper like wings. The camels were, 1: thick eyebrows and double layer eyelashes, 2: fat storing hump and 3: feet that don’t overheat from the hot sand. The monkeys were, 1: long tail to hold on to trees and food, 2: long legs and arms to swing from tree to tree. The fish has gills so that water goes in to their mouth, and when it goes through the gills it produces oxygen and releases the water and carbon dioxide into the water. Lastly the giraffe has 1: a really long neck, and 2: camouflage so it can blend in to look like a spotty tree.

  4. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations?
    What I have learnt about animal adaptations is that they can help them to survive and so they can hunt for the food that they eat. Every animal has at least one type of adaptation they use to survive in the wild. They have either one Of the two types. The two types of animal adaptations are Physical Adaptations and Behaviour Adaptations. An example of a Physical Adaptation is that a Polar Bear has thick fur and it can raise its body temperature. They do this so they can survive the coldness of the Antarctic or North Pole waters. An example of a Behaviour Adaptation is when a Bear goes to sleep for an incredibly long time so they can survive. They do this because there is a rough amount of food for them to eat. very animal in the whole entire world has at least one.

    Explain why animals need adaptations?
    If animals didn’t have their adaptations they wouldn’t be able to survive in the wild for very long at all. If animals didn’t have any adaptations at all they would die. They would die because they wouldn’t have any plans on surviving or tactics and also because they have no features on their bodies so they can survive.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video?
    Camel- A camel have a hump stored with a ginormous amount of fat in it because when they are walking all the time it gives them some energy so they can keep on going for as long as they can.

    Fish- A fishes adaptation is their gills. They need their gills to breathe under the sea or in any other water. The water passes through their mouth and then the get the oxygen out of the water and then the water runs out of their gills.

    Bird- A birds adaptations are their beaks. They need they beaks so they can hunt, eat and drink their water. Their beaks come in all different shapes and sizes, it all depends on what bird they are. Some are short and fat and others are long and skinny.

    Giraffe- A giraffes adaptations are it’s long neck and their skin pattern. They need their extremely long necks to reach up to the leaves up high in the trees where most other animals can’t get it. They need their pattern ps they their predators can’t see them because they blend into their surroundings.

    Penguin- A penguins adaptation is they dark black feathers. Although they can’t fly, they can still survive in the wild. They need their black fur because it attracts the suns heat and then the penguin heats up.

  5. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations. It is things that help them to survive for an example camels have strong feet so when the sands is hot they won’t get hurt. Also about there physical.

    Explain why animals need adaptations. Because if animals don’t have adaptations they can die. They can get really sick. They can no longer do out and about stuff

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video. Camels feet are patten because so they can walk in the sand properly and so the sand does not burn there feet. Monkeys have long arms and legs so they can swing to tree to tree. Penguins have webbed feet so they can walk on the ice properly and so they can swim better. They also have blabber so they can survive because the blabber makes them warm. Birds have long and sharp beaks to get there food. Giraffe have long necks so that they can grab leaves or food from high trees. Fish have Gil’s to help them breathe under water.

  6. I have learnt that animals have different adaptation not the same as each Other.
    I learnt that animals use there adaptation for surviving.

    The tow different adaptation is physical is where the animal dose something with there body. The other one is behaviour where the animal acts.

    Animals need adaptations because that’s how they survive in there habitat.
    The monkey has long tale so he can swing throw.

  7. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations. It’s there behaviour and how they survive they have physical behaviour. Physical is how does there body adapt and behaviour is what they do.

    Explain why animals need adaptations. To help them survive in there habitat enclosure

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video. The camel has a big lump on there back so they can store food. The giraffe has a big long neck that’s how animals confused it as a tree. The penguin has web feet so it swim so fast away from others predators. The monkey has a long tail so it can swing on trees.

  8. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    animal adaptations are thing that help animal survive in their habitat.

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations.
    Camper flashing to hide from their pray.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    So they can survive in their habitat.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.
    That camels store up fat in their humps for engage. That bird have different kind of beaks do eat different food. Fish have Gil’s to to help them breathe. Monkeys have long tails to hang on to trees. Giraffes have long necked so they can eat their food in long trees.

  9. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    I learnt that animal adaptation is how they live in the wild and how it helps them live in the wild. Adaptation is behaviour and physical. Physical is something that is important on there body and behaviour Is how they survive in the wild.
    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations.
    Physical and behaviour, physical is were an animal has an important thing on its body like a walrus has tusk so it can get on to the rocks. Behaviour is how they get away from predator or hunts it’s prey.
    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    If animals didn’t have adaptation they would not be able to live I the wild because they have different things. If a penguin was in the desert it would not survive in the hot heat.
    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video

  10. Animal adaptations are things that help them survive in their habitats.

    That camels stor up fat in their Humps for energy. Penguins have blabber in their skin that helps them not too be cold and they don’t die. A fish stays in water so they don’t get cooled. A giraffe lives on land were it is warm and they have a Long neck so they are able to get to the high trees and to eat. A monkey lives on trees and they have long armes and a long tails to help them swig from trees.

  11. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    I have learnt that animal adaptations are features in an animal that helps them survive in the wild. Some animal adaptions are physical and behaviour physical are them changing colours or them camouflaging behaviour is when they hunt for food they feel hungry because they haven’t had any food.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need adaptations because without them they can’t survive in the wild by themselves eg with the penguin they have black fur on their backs to keep them warm.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.
    Fish have gills for them to breath underneath the water. Monkeys have long arms so they can swing in the trees. Birds have beaks for eating insects down to fruit.
    Camels store fat in their hump for when they haven’t had food or water for days. Giraffes have long necks for reaching high in the trees for eating food and camouflaging.

  12. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    All kind of animals need to have food because if they don’t eat they will die. Birds need bones to fly around Australia and over seas. Monkeys need there tails for them to swing on tree breach. All animals need to have habitat to live and have food to eat. Penguins need there hair to keep warm and when they are wait. Penguins need fiends to swim in water and the have long beaks to caught there food so penguins can eat.

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations.
    All the animals have physical. Like camouflage to get away from anther animals if they want to the animals. All animals have behaviour when they look for food and when they get happy and they over react when they are over excited.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need adaptation because animals need habitat and there diet to make them fit and healthy to run around.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.
    Giraffes have really long necks to eat to keep them healthy.
    Monkeys have long curly tails for them to swing on the long think tree breach.
    Fish has powerful tails for them to swim away from other fishes.
    Penguins have powerful fiends to swim for fish just like huge and tiny fishes.
    Cameos have shoes for them to walk in sand.

  13. Animal Adaptations!!

    Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    I learnt that Adaptions are what animals have/do to survive in their own habit and environment.

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations.
    Physical- Physical is what the animal has on them to help to survive in their environment and habit.
    Behaviour- Behaviour is what the animal does like for example if you walked out of your house and there was a magpie and the magpie would fly away because the magpie might think you are a threat.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    To survive in their own environment and habit to live.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.
    1) ßirds- ßîrds have hollow bones to fly easier to make them be lighter.
    2) Fish- When fish open their mouth water goes through and out of the gills.

  14. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations?
    I have learnt that pandas have sixth thumb and a penguin has blubber to stay live

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations?
    A penguin has blubber to stay live and so they can keep warm in they habitat. A pandas have sixth thumb to grab ban boo. And Graf has a very long neck and they get mistaken by a tree. And camel has long eye lasher so they couldn’t get doter in they eye.

  15. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    I learnt that animals need adaptation to help them survive in there habitat.
    I think that adaptation are good and there are two adaptation there is physical and behaviour. Adaptation are fantastic and there adaptation only work in there habitat because if you put a snow leopard in the desist in will slowly get to hot and die of hunger and thirst. Animal adaptation only work for them that’s why they have there adaptation because if the were like humans they would die because they will freeze to death or get way to hot and die of hunger and thirst.Every animal has a adaptation to help them in live.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need adaptation to help then in the habitat because if animals don’t get adaptation they will die easy that’s why they need adaptation because if camels live in the snow they will die of freeze and if the snow leopards live in the desert it will die of hotness and they will have no food because there food is only in there habitat so if they went somewhere us they will die of hunger.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.

    The penguin had black fur to help then be hotter because the sun reflex to black so the sun get the penguins skin and it helped them in there habitat. The penguin has really strong fins to help then go really fast in the water.

    The giraffe has a super long neck to help then reach up to the super long breaches and get there food. They also have a really strong tongue helps them with the leave and so the breaches don’t spike there tongues so they can keep eating because if they didn’t have there strong tongues they won’t be able to eat because they will get saw tongues. The giraffe has a super long neck and a checked skin so they don’t get spotted by something they will get mistaken by a tree.

    Camel, A camel has a super long eye lash so when the wind blow it dons’t heart there eyes by sand. the camel has super flat feet to help them walk in the desert so they don’t sink into the sand.

    Fish, The gills help them to breath in oxygen so they don’t drowned.

    Bird, The bird has a super long beck so they can eat there food so I mean that the can fly over them and eat there pray

  16. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.
    Animal adaptations help animals to survive in their natural habitat. Animal adaptations are kind of a skill which animals use for survival and protection.

    Describe the two different types of animal adaptations.
    The two different types of animal adaptations are behaviour which is what they do in their habitat like how they act and physical is what happens to their bodies while they change themselves so the temperature of their habitat suits them.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need their adaptations so they can survive in their natural habitat. Animal adaptations are a type of skill which every animal needs to use for not only their survival but they also need adaptations for their protection.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.
    Monkeys have strong tails which help it to hang onto trees while swinging, feet and hands for reaching out and holding onto their food. They also have long arms and legs for holding onto limbs on the trees.

    Giraffes have long necks which help them to reach the really high leaves on really high branches. They have long knobby legs which also give them a lot of high which is also great for reaching leaves on really high branches.

    Fish have gills which they use for filling their mouths with the water. The gills get rid of carbon monoxide and keep the oxygen which is used for breathing. They have scales which are waterproof and they are on the outside of the fishes body.

    Camels have layers of eyelashes which keep the hot sand out of their eyes. Their hump stores fat and they keep it for extra energy when their migrate through the vast desserts. They use the fat for food and water for when there are little food.

  17. Describe what you have learnt about animal adaptations.

    I have learnt that there are two adaptation which are physical and behaviour. An animal adaptation is what an animal has or does to survive. For example and snow leopard has a short noise which generates cold air two hot are to warm it up because it is in she snow.

    Explain why animals need adaptations.
    Animals need adaptations to survive in its particular habitat. If a animal didn’t have a adaptation it would die because it doesn’t has what it needs for example an penguin needs adaptations because it has a thick coat of fur and the sun shines on it’s back and so that’s how they keep warm.

    Describe the different adaptations that the animals have in the video.

    A fish can breathe under water because they swallow water and that make oxygen which comes out of its gills.

    A monkey has long arms which helps it swing from branch to branch. They also have long tails to help them hang on a branch.

    A camel has thick eye brows to keep the sand out of its eyes and stores food on its back and have special feet for the sand.

    Giraffe have long body’s so they can get food from up high and camouflage.
