How do adaptations increase the organism’s ability to survive?

Students conduct a practical investigation in teams to examine the adaptations of organisms that increase their ability to survive in their environment.

Students will research, develop, and then test enrichment items at Sydney Zoo on exhibit with zoo keepers placing them with certain species. The research and design will be species specific with resources supplied to guide students on their creations.
