Step 4. After their drawings are completed, have students predict which environment they believe the plant lives in. Then have students do research to find if their predictions were correct. They should give two reasons why the plant can live in this place, citing examples of physical features that allow particular plants to live in that specific environment. Ask questions such as:
Step 5. Each group should share their findings with the class. Display all the drawings and research findings next to each plant. Students could observe all the plants in the class for a few weeks, while studying Utah environments and the adaptations of organisms.
