Introduction

Scientists all over the world are worried about the future of the animal world as habitats continue to change. They are looking for animal adaptation experts that can transform animals to help them survive in new habitats. After all, would a camel have a hump if it didn’t live in the desert or would a spider monkey have a long tail if it didn’t have to swing through trees?

Congratulations! You have been chosen to be part of a team of scientists known as the "Animal Transformers"! Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to research a specific animal, its characteristics, adaptations, and native environment. Your mission will then be to transform the animal to adapt in a new environment. How will it have to change to survive?

Essential Questions:  How do organisms interact with each other and the non-living environment? How do animals adapt?
