Animal Adaptations: The Desert Tortoise

Hi all!  Today during science rotations I’d like for you to do some research on the desert tortoise. 

BEFORE watching the movie, please write down all of the adaptations that you think a desert tortoise uses to survive its harsh climate. DURING the movie, when you hear an adaptation that you have not yet noted, pause the movie and add it to your list.  If the movie mentions any of the adaptations YOU have already noted, put a checkmark next to it!

Have fun researching, scientists!
