Y6 Plant Adaptations

Pupils identify the range and variety of adaptations that plants have evolved in order to help them live and thrive in a range of different habitats.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution
  • NaG - pupils should appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments, for example by exploring how giraffes’ necks got longer, or the development of insulating fur on the arctic fox
  • WS - pupils might analyse the advantages and disadvantages of specific adaptations, such having tendrils on climbing plants, brightly coloured and scented flowers
