RADICAL REPTILES

Learn about the unique characteristics of these animals and get up close and personal with a few of our scaly friends. Teachers will be asked to supply candy corn and M&Ms.

Kansas College and Career Readiness Standards for Science Disciplinary Core Ideas:

  • A: Structure and Function – All organisms have external parts. Different animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water and air. Plants also have different parts (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits) that help them survive and grow. (1-LS1-1)
  • B: Growth and Development of Organisms – Adult plants and animals can have young. In many kinds of animals, parents and the offspring themselves engage in behaviors that help the offspring to survive. (1-LS1-2)
  • D: Information Processing – Animals have body parts that capture and convey different kinds of information needed for growth and survival. Animals respond to these inputs with behaviors that help them survive. Plants also respond to some external inputs. (1-LS1-1)
