As they watch this clip, students could write down the names for the different animals observed. In each case, the animals could be categorised as mammals, birds, reptiles, and so on and an explanation of how each animal has adapted to its environment. For example: “camel” – “mammal” – “nostrils which close and long eyelashes to keep out sand in a storm”. Students could then take one animal featured in the clip as a case study and go on to research their physical and behavioural characteristics in more detail and consider how these are essential for their survival.
