Subject: How to scientifically investigate adaptations

Dear Student,


Thank you for your time. It appears you have become quite the expert on researching living things and their environments, bravo!

I’ve received a video from The Investigator - a budding science detective on her own journey of discovery. I think you could learn a lot from her! 

Learning intention: In the video, you will learn how to scientifically investigate adaptations.

Your task:

View the video and follow along on her journey to see how she uses scientific thinking and processes to investigate a living thing and its peculiar features. 

Pay close attention to the skills and methods that she uses. To help you, I’ve marked them out in the video.

When the video finishes, have a go at the task that follows.




S. Holmes

Science Detective
