dear Family member,
"What does it take to survive?" That is the
big question we are exploring in this unit. To
answer it, we are reading, writing, and talking
about animal adaptations and how they help
animals get what they need to survive. Be a
part of our exploration! With your student, read
the New Words on the next page. Then follow
these directions.

directions:
1. Talk together about animals and insects that
blend into their habitats. Share what you
know about how animals do this and why
it is good to blend in. Try to use some of the
New Words in your discussion.
2. Together, choose an animal that blends into
its habitat. Have your student draw a picture
of it in the space below. Help add labels to the
drawing. Use the New Words when you can.
3. Remind your student to bring the completed
drawing to class.
