Exhibit/Program
Investigate: Plant & Animal Adaptations (September 2018)
During the Investigate program, students will take the role of Museum curators and use close observation and critical thinking to discover the origin, meaning, and importance of real objects from the Museum’s Collection. 

Student Objectives:
  • Learners will be able to analyze primary sources (specimen) and make inferences about them based on detailed observations.
  • Learners will be able to describe what an adaptation is and be able to provide examples of adaptations specific animals and plants use to survive in their habitats. 
Curriculum Connections:

Curriculum Connections:

  • NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes; Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
  • NGSS Science and Engineering Practices: Constructing Explanations; Engaging in Argument from Evidence
  • Michigan K-12 Social Studies Standards: P1 Reading and Communication, P2 Inquiry Research and Analysis

Maker/Donor
Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary

The Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary is home to hundreds of reptiles who come to the sanctuary through adoption, donation, rescue, or from other institutions.  They work with local and state authorities with animal control needs and also work with schools and universities with educational programs and internships.  

 

No animals are bought, sold, or traded at the Alligator Sanctuary.  We provide a comfortable home and care for these animals for the rest of their lives
