Major Understandings

MST4.E.LE.3.1a: Each animal has different structures that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction.
  • wings, legs, or fins enable some animals to seek shelter and escape predators
  • the mouth, including teeth, jaws, and tongue, enables some animals to eat and drink
  • eyes, nose, ears, tongue, and skin of some animals enable the animals to sense their surroundings
  • claws, shells, spines, feathers, fur, scales, and color of body covering enable some animals to protect themselves from predators and other environmental conditions, or enable them to obtain food
  • some animals have parts that are used to produce sounds and smells to help the animal meet its needs
  • the characteristics of some animals change as seasonal conditions change (e.g., fur grows and is shed to help regulate body heat; body fat is a form of stored energy and it changes as the seasons change)
