Blending #57

Question: How do animals protect themselves from predators?

          Research:  Books lead them to think about camouflage

          Hypothesis:  Do you think animal’s color can help to protect them?

          Experiment:  Outside-find pipe cleaner

          Analysis:  Was it easier to see the green or colored pipe cleaner?

Colors that look alike are harder to find. A white bunny is

hard to see when sitting in a field of snow and a green

snake would be hard to see in the grass.

          Conclusion: Color helps protect animals from predators.

 Ground Temperature #58

          Question: What can you tell me about the desert? How do animals live in the desert?

          Research:  Books lead them to think about burrows

          Hypothesis:  Why do you think animals in the desert dig burrows?

          Experiment:  Outside-observe temperatures

          Analysis:  The thermometer in the ground was cooler than the                                 thermometer on the grass. Ground temperature is cooler than surface temperture.

          Conclusion: Desert animals can burrow to stay cool.
