Wetlands Adaptations | Boom Cards | Digital
Use these thirty self-checking cards to practice determining whether an adaptation of a plant or animal is physical or behavioural. These cards require no prep other than assigning them to your students online.
This digital resource includes:
- instructions for teachers to set up a Boom Learning account.
- 30 self-checking cards which will be added to your library on boomlearning.com when the link is applied.
- no typing or spelling.
- questions where students determine if the adaptations are physical or behavioural.
- plants and animals found in wetland ecosystems in Canada.
Ninja Note: This activity is designed for students to review or practice after learning the concept. It does not teach the difference between the two types of adaptations.
