- Build a timeline of the camel migration and adaptations for reference
- Have pupils record the camel genetic adaptations as notes while they view the video
- Expects a basic understanding of the concept of genetic adaptations
- Presentation uses photos and actual fossil specimen to demonstrate the structural adaptations
- The topic is engaging and provides several opportunities to study genetic adaptations
