The Adaptation FIELD Kit is a unique way of educating your students about local animal and plant adaptations. Students will be intrigued every step of the way through the interactive, inquiry-based learning, and hands-on experience. This kit includes surprise puzzles of an animal or plant that will be followed by questions and a "show and tell" of animal or plant artifacts (biofacts). To end your day, indoor and outdoor activities will be provided to continue your students learning and inspire a connection to nature.

Adaptations kits are:

  • Adaptations I - Eagle, Skunk, Beaver, Snake 
  • Adaptations II - Bee, Wild Rose, Deer, Bat

Adaptations kit includes:

    • The rental is for your school 
      • as many teachers at your school may use this kit within the rented week(s) time
    • A lesson plan (including topics on living and non-living, needs to survive, habitats, and animal and plant adaptations)
    • Felt animal and plant adaptation puzzles
    • Biofacts (such as skulls, plant material, and tracks) for an eagle, deer, bat, skunk, bee, wild rose, snake, and beaver.
    • Including North America's First People's meanings and the importance of an eagle, beaver, and deer. Additionally, aligns with First Peoples Principals of Learning.

Testimonial

We were able to use the Adaptations kit for one afternoon. As soon as the natural animal artifacts were displayed, my K/1 class was fully engaged! Kenzie has spared no expense to collect the most relevant hands-on resources to complement this kit. The thinking and observations the students shared while looking at and touching the artifacts were so much more insightful, focused and enthusiastic - and then they wanted to see what other goodies were in the kit!
Our class loved the field kits! Students were engaged and all of the artifacts sparked a lot of curiosity and questions! Thanks!
