LI: To use ideas of adaptation and evolution to understand animals and their environments (Science)


Like Charles Darwin, David Attenborough is a naturalist; this means that he studies plants and animals so that we can all learn more about them.


  1. Watch this episode of Frozen Planet.

As you watch, note down any animals that you see.

  1. After the episode, write down why you think each animal lives in the habitat. What characteristics does the animal have? How has it adapted to the environment?


Charles Darwin’s ideas were the first to suggest that animals adapt to their environment.

  1. Write notes next to each animal to suggest which characteristics best suit the animal to the habitat. You can also use the internet to research in mor detail.

This lizard is suited to the desert environment because it’s scales camouflage into the sand.


Polar Bear- it has hairs on it’s paws. I think this is so that it helps them to grip onto the slippy ice.
