Hi Carolyn,

I do a lesson like this, I call it my "Chimaera" Project because it combines two or more body parts of animals. The kids name their new creations, like "Kangowiseal"-combination of Kangaroo, owl, seal and "Parzebrfly"-combination of parrot, zebra, seal. Whatever they come up with. What I like about your lesson is you connection with the scientific concepts of camoufage, adaptation and classification. I am going to use this idea-tag it on to my existing lesson.

Thanks so much for sharing!
