Colors in Our Natural World

Field work is a wonderful tool scientists use to study subjects as they are in their natural environment. With a handful of paint chips, learners explore the outdoors to find plants or animals that match the colors they have been assigned. They return to the class and discuss how animals and plants have, through adaptation, developed survival traits such as coloration and camouflage. Then, pupils write a few paragraphs describing how animals use camouflage out in the wild.
