Big River Journey Classroom Activity: Wetland Birds Birds, Beaks, and Adaptations Objective: The student will learn and describe how different kinds of bird beaks have adapted to feed on different foods within a specific habitat.
Teacher Information Desert Discovery Class © 1999, revised 2008 ASDM BEAKS, FOOD AND TOOLS O BJECTIVES Students should: • Correlate the design and structure of bird beaks with the type of food items its gathers.
Kkjkjkj Hawaiian Bird Beak Adaptation Lab Summary Students will be introduced to the different types of bird beaks that Hawaiian Birds have in order to adapt to the different habitats in which they live.
Students learn that different birds have different types of beaks. They use models of these beaks to gather different types of 'foods' and learn that gathering success is limited by the type of 'beak' they have.
In this simulation, students gather data to see how beak mutations can influence natural selection.
A Teacher's Guide to Adaptations in Bird Beaks, Feet, and Colors Christian Burns, Cornell University What makes a bird a bird? • Hard-shelled, amniotic eggs o Hard-shelled eggs are not a trait exclusive to birds.
Their beaks, also called bills, are adapted to match their food types. Many shorebirds have tweezer-like beaks. A bird with a "short tweezer" beak will take food near the surface of the mud, while a "long tweezer" beak can reach animals that burrow deeper.
Description Through a simulations activity, students will learn how shorebird beaks are uniquely adapted to eat their prey. Objectives Students will be able to: • Describe how bird beaks are adapted to the foods they eat.
What did your first generation bird beaks look like? Did they look different from the last generation’s beaks? How so? Draw pictures. What is the term for the driving force
